Noticed there was a 5 star tab that wasn't right, so hopefully people will see this one. 
It should be correct.  Enjoy.


Tuning: EADGBe


Guitar 1

Intro/Verse


     G/A               Dsus2               Bm              D

Excellent tab. One correction, once it gets to that chorus it goes:
e|-----------------------|
b|-(0)-(0)-(0)---10--12--|
g|--7---9---11---7---9---|
d|--5---7---9------------|
a|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|
