Tune down half step: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb

~ means let ring
x means rake
/ means slide down
h means hammer on
b means bend up to next note

I have yet to find a good version of this song, so here is one that my guitar teacher and I came up with.
I wasn't exact on timings or number of times to repeat everything, but 
by listening to the song it is easy to follow along.

I guess the song could also be played in standard tuning, just move 
everything down one fret, but for the intro and prechorus the way 
I have them you need to tune down.

Also, there are two guitars in this song but I don't know all the little fills 
and stuff that the other guitar plays, but this is all the main stuff you need to play it good.
