capo 2

E       022100
Esus4   022200
F#m     244222
F#m7    242222
Asus2   X02200
B7      221202

The Verse is all  E (with a hammer on sus4) F#m(with a pull off 7th) 
The Chorus is Asus2, B7, E, Asus2

For the sake of speedy tabbing, I will ignore the hammer on & pull offs in the 
verses, listen to it and you can
figure out the timing.  
This is a song off his upcoming album.. You can listen to it here:

[Verse]
E
We are young we have
years ahead maybe
we might fall in love
             F#m
or fall apart
          E
fall apart
         F#m
Before it ends well we
                 E
should try to start

[Chorus]
         Asus2
   So I’ll go
            B7            E
   But I’m telling you I don’t
          Asus2
   want to go
              Asus2               B7
   I could be stuck here and happy

[Verse]
E
There’s a puzzle I
work on endlessly
and I’ve got all the sides and all the corners
               F#m
But there’s a space
               E
Oh there’s a space
            F#m
Lost some pieces I
           E 
can’t replace

[Chorus]
           Asus2
   So I’ll be
              B7           E
   But I’m telling you I don’t
          Asus2
   want to be
          Asus2            B7
   Just a wasted puzzle piece

[Verse]
E
We are old and our son
took the dog away
and fair enough guess we’re
               F#m
tired all the time
          E
all the time
             F#m
and you know dogs they need
                E
ample time outside

[Chorus]
           Asus2
   So I’ll stay
           B7              E
   But I’m telling you I don’t
           Asus2
   want to stay

        Asus2         B7 
So I’ll brace myself against the wall
      E                Asus2
and hope to God that I don’t fall
   Asus2              B7
My bones are worn my hip won’t hold
          E
I used to be so young 
         Asus2
How did I get so old  
      Asus2                B7
Won’t you take my cane and hold my hand
          E          Asus2
You’re holding on to all I have
     Asus2             B7
just a basket full of memories
        E                 Asus2
and I am loosing more each day it seems 
       Asus2          B7
but if I can make it to the street 
              E
I’ll steal a car or a bike
              Asus2
whatever there is to steal
       Asus2            B7
and it might get cold I just don’t care
     E              Asus2
I’m going till I’m getting there
     Asus2                B7
I’ll ride my steed all through this town

till I.........
E
have looked
    Asus2
till I have found
     Asus2       B7
Your peaceful memory

Asus2               B7
Won’t you return to me
Asus2               B7
Won’t you return to me

Great tab. The only little correction that I noticed is that the B7 is 221202 instead of x21202. You can hear the top string when he strums it slowly.
