-note: I got these chords and notes from carefully watching the live version
 on the letterman show. check it out on youtube.  Also, I realized halfway
through making this tab that the studio version is half a step down on the
keys.  So if you want to play along to studio version or something just play
 everything one fret lower and you will have it.  This tab does not have the
correct strumming patterns or number of times you have to strum each chord
 due to my laziness, just the chords and notes that you need to know, So you
 will have to figure out the strumming patters and stuff by yourself... NOT
 THAT HARD.


for the intro, just hold the D Minor chord and keep switching from 2nd to 3rd fret 
on the third string.
-start with the third fret on the third string though.
standard tuning
1-------1----------1--------------------------------------------|
2-----3--3-------3---3------------------------------------------|
3---3--------3-2------------------------------------------------|
4---------------------------------------------------------------|
5---------------------------------------------------------------|
6---------------------------------------------------------------|

the guitar part after that goes
1------6-------5--------3--------3------------------------------|
2----6---6---6---6----3---3----4---4----------------------------|
3--7-------7--------3--------5----------------------------------|
4---------------------------------------------------------------|
5---------------------------------------------------------------|
6---------------------------------------------------------------|

for the I KEEP MY... part after that, just keep strumming the F chord on 1st fret.

then the chords come in. play each one four times
1--6----5----3---3-------------------------------------------------|
2--6----6----3---4-------------------------------------------------|
3--7----7----3---5-------------------------------------------------|
4--8----7----5---5-------------------------------------------------|
5--8----5----5---3-------------------------------------------------|
6--6----5----3---3-------------------------------------------------|

then after he says i keep my eyes fixed on the sun or something
1---6--5--3--1---------------------------------------|
2---6--5--3--1---------------------------------------|
3---7--6--4--2---------------------------------------|
4---8--7--5--3---------------------------------------|
5---8--7--5--3---------------------------------------|
6---6--5--3--1---------------------------------------|

then the riff
1--6-6-6-6--13^--9-^-------------------------|
2--6-6-6-6--16^--12^-------8-^---------------|
3--6-6-6-6-----------------10^---------------|
4--------------------------------------------|
5--------------------------------------------|
6--------------------------------------------|

then
1---1---3---1----------------------|
2---1---3---3----------------------|
3---2---4---3----------------------|
4---3---5---3----------------------|
5---3---5---1----------------------|
6---1---3---1----------------------|

then the "even on a cloudy day" part
1---6--6--1--3----------------------------------|
2---8--6--1--3----------------------------------|
3---8--7--2--3----------------------------------|
4---8--8--3--5----------------------------------|
5---6--8--3--5----------------------------------|
6---6--6--1--3----------------------------------|

then the F chord again the the D minor chord to end it. thanks!

It looks like most of the tabs for this song are missing that the first part starts to alternate with this slight change

1--------1----------1--------------------------------------------|
2------3--3-------3---3------------------------------------------|
3--0^3--------3-2------------------------------------------------|
4----------------------------------------------------------------|
5----------------------------------------------------------------|
6----------------------------------------------------------------|
