Billy plays the song on an electric guitar and the whole song is pretty much just palm 
with some open strums in between. But I noticed some tabs were way off and others close, 
I'm going to make a better one.

F |---| C |---| D |---| Bb |---| Am |---|
  |---|   |---|   |---|    |---|    |---|
  |---|   |-5-|   |-7-|    |-3-|    |---|
  |-3-|   |-5-|   |-7-|    |-3-|    |-7-|
  |-3-|   |-3-|   |-5-|    |-1-|    |-7-|
  |-1-|   |---|   |---|    |---|    |-5-|

Note: play F power chords palm muted and quick and pull off every 8th note on the E 
for every "F" so:

-INTRO-

F
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song
   C                   D
I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long
Bb                                 F
People ask me when will you grow up to be a man
           C                               Bb                   F
But all the girls I loved at school are already pushing prams

F
I loved you then as I love you still
   C                          D
Though I put you on a pedestal, I put you on the pill
Bb                      F
I don't feel bad about letting you go
           C                  F
I just feel bad about letting you know

(Before each chorus he plays a quick opens strum of Bb so it's like a 16th note of just 
strums then back to palm muting...)


Bb                   Am           F
   I don't want to change the world
F                              D
   I'm not looking for A New England
            Bb                    Am         C
   I'm just looking for another girl
Bb                   Am           F
   I don't want to change the world
F                              D
   I'm not looking for A New England
            Bb           C        F
   I'm just looking for another girl

F
I loved the words you wrote to me
   C                     D
But that was bloody yesterday
Bb                         F
I can't survive on what you send
C             Bb          F
Everytime you need a friend

F
I saw two shooting stars last night
   C              D
I wished on them but they were only sattelites
Bb                             F
Is It wrong to wish on space hardware?
C       Bb      F
I wish I wish I wish you'd care
Bb                 Am          F
I don't want to change the world...

Ends with:

F|---| C |---| Bb|---|
 |---|   |---|   |---|
 |-10-|  |---|   |---|
 |-10-|  |-10-|  |-8-|
 |-8-|   |-10-|  |-8-|
 |---|   |-8-|   |-6-|

-Outro-

A|-8--8--10-10-8-8-10-10-|
