I attempted to tab this by watching a video of her playing it live, and this is 
what I came up with! It's an amazing song, and the acoustic version is gorgeous.
Rate/comment, ya know the drill :)

[The D's and U's are for strumming, D = strum down, U = strum up. Listen to the 
acoustic version, the strumming will make complete sense, I swear.]

~ = let ring

P.S. I apologize for the spacing issues.  If anyone has any suggestions on how to 
fix them, please let me know.  I've tried for literally 3 hours to figure out why 
it won't space correctly and it's just frustrating me further.  I've tried 
retyping the tab into TextEdit (the Mac version of Windows' Notepad), with 
absolutely no luck; it just kinda messed it up more and ruined my apostrophes.
So please, please, please any spacing advice, we're automatically best friends.
