Not too bad, but these chords are quite simplified and a few things are lacking :)

The riff in the intro and between verses etc goes like this:
Em - Am - G - B(m/F#) (Jack sometimes plays F#-G-F# on the bass on the Bm chord).

The verses have a chord on each bar:
Em - G - Am - Am/C Am/D twice
Em - G - Am - Am (on the last line before "and you know what you know in your head" etc).

The final chord in the bridge is actually a B, not a C. So when he sings "They'll believe in ding-dong bell" you end the line with a B chord and then back to the riff.

But good tab nonetheless. I would suggest you add the extra chords in the verse - it really makes it sound a lot more like the recording :)

Oh and also, on the last line of the verse bridge, there is an F# chord befor the B chord:

G F# Bsus4 B
Will you, won't you, do you don't you wanna make more bread? What a Bringdown!
