No other tab had the proper alternate tuning to sound exactly like the recording, so 
it is.

I'll only plot the first verse, the one interlude, and the chorus. The rest of the song 
the same progressions.

Verse:

Am                                                C/G
He said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down

Em                                 Riff1 (Am)
I'm gonna put it six feet underground

Am                                              C/G
He said I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall

Em                                            Riff1 (Am)
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls

repeat until

Interlude:

Fmaj   G6   Fmaj   G6
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah...

Chorus:

Fmaj                                           D/F#
Honey, all the movements you're starting to make

                                Fmaj
See me crumble and fall on my face

                                 D/F#
And I know the mistakes that I made

        Bb                        Fmaj
See it all disappear without a trace

                                  D/F#
And they call as they beckon you on

              Bb                   Am C/G Em Riff1
They said start as you mean to go on

Am                          C/G  Em Riff1 Am C/G Em
Start as you mean to go on

great tab, but i just need to point out that the diagram you gave for the d/f# chord is wrong
You put
D/F#
c|--0--
B|--3--
G|--2--
D|--0--
A|--x--
E|--3--
which is a D/G. I think it should be
D/F#
c|--0--
B|--3--
G|--2--
D|--0--
A|--x--
E|--2--
(technically i think this is a d7/f# because of the c but whatever)
apart from that great job and many thanks :)

oh and also the song is called A rush of blood to the head which might explain why you're not getting as many hits as you should... i mean this tab should have way more views
