Track: Man Overboard

I love this song but all the tabs i've seen don't sound right when you 
play them, so here's my effort which sounds about right.

cool bass intro:
G-0-0-7-0-5-0-4-0-0-0-7-0-5-0-4-0-0-0-7-0-5-0-4-0-5-0-4-0-5-0-4-0
D----------------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------

guitar intro:
e-------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------
G-------------------5555555555555555--------------------
D-55555555-77777777-5555555555555555-------------------- x3
A-55555555-77777777-3333333333333333--------------------
E-33333333-55555555-------------------------------------

at the end of the intro when tom sings "time keeps movin'..."
he plays
e-------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------
G-------------------55555555-7--------------------------
D-55555555-77777777-55555555-7-------------------------- x1
A-55555555-77777777-33333333-5--------------------------
E-33333333-55555555-------------------------------------

cool riff 1:
e-------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------
G-------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------- x2
A-----2h3p2--0-2h3p2-0-------2h3p2--0-2h3p2-0-----------
E-3-3-------------------0-0-----------------------------

cool riff 2:
e-------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------
G-------------------------------------------------------
D-5-5-----0-----0-0h2p0--------------------------------- x4
A-----2h3---------------3-------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------

"cool riff 2" can also be played with the open G string but i think 
this way sounds better.

verses:(palm muted)
e-------------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------------------------
G---------------------------55555555--------------------
D-5555555555555555-22222222-55555555-------------------- x2
A-5555555555555555-22222222-33333333--------------------
E-3333333333333333-00000000-----------------------------

on the second verse the higher notes are accented (listen to the song)

when the intro is played again it is played like this:
e---------------------------------
B---------------------------------
G-----------------5--------------- (let notes ring)
D-5/-----/7-------5---------------
A-5/slide/7-------3---------------
E-3/-----/5-----------------------

outro:
Part a: e-------------------------------------
        B-------------------------------------
        G------------------5555555555555555---
        D-5555555555555555-5555555555555555---
        A-5555555555555555-3333333333333333---    
        E-3333333333333333--------------------
         1)"Man on a mission....."
         2)"Loss of a good friend...."

Part b: e-------------------------------------
        B-------------------------------------
        G-------------------5555555555555555--

        E-33333333-55555555-------------------
         "Insider information....."

Part c: e------------------------------------------
        B------------------------------------------
        G-------------------55555555-77777777------
        D-55555555-77777777-55555555-77777777---5--
        A-55555555-77777777-33333333-55555555---5--
        E 33333333-55555555---------------------3--
         "Tight lipped procrastination........"

for the outro play: part a
                    part b
                    part a
                    part c

that's it! i was going to write out the song order but i can't be arsed 
so you'll have to listen to the song. anyway, that's all the parts of 
the song, now put 'em in order!

A---0-2-3-2-0-2-3-2-0---0-2-3-2-0-2-3-2-0-
E-3--------------------0--------------------
