I think your tab is the closest I have ever found on the net… But I think if you look
at my version you will see that the one you have posted is not quite right.

 

Colin Hay Acoustic version of Overkill

This is an alternate tuning First and Sixth stings tuned to D.

This is a great blues slide tune, so try a slider on it after you 

learn the song and have some fun. I don’t know the names of 

these cords so I have numbered them. C1 =Cord #1 and so on.

 

D --0-- --x-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --0-- --x-- --x--
B --7-- --7-- --7-- --7-- --5-- --5-- --3-- --0-- --0--
G --0-- --7-- --0-- --6-- --0-- --4-- --4-- --7-- --6--
D --7-- --7-- --7-- --7-- --5-- --5-- --4-- --5-- --5--
A --5-- --5-- --5-- --4-- --3-- --2-- --2-- --0-- --0--
D --0-- --5-- --x-- --x-- --x-- --x-- --0-- --7-- --7--

 

    C1    C2    C3    C4    C5    C6    C7    C8    C9     

 

D --x-- --x-- --0-- --0-- --0--
B --0-- --0-- --3-- --3-- --2--
G --3-- --3-- --4-- --2-- --2--
D --4-- --2-- --5-- --2-- --2--
A --4-- --4-- --5-- --0-- --0--
D --x-- --x-- --x-- --x-- --x--

 

   C10   C11   C12   C13   C14

 

Intro is C1 and C2 cords. 

The intro is used as a break during the song also.

C3                       C4

            I can't get to sleep

 

C5                           C6

            I think about the implications

 

...

 

C7                     C13       C14

Day after day it reappears

 

C7                                             C8          C9

Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear

 

C10          C11                     C12

Ghosts appear and fade away

Perhaps reading would be beneficial?

"I don?t know the names of these cords so I have numbered them. C1 =Cord #1 and so on."

...Wow well maybe the idiot who made the tab should learn the names of the chords. Because this is a piece of shit.
