Such a great song.  Updating this tab to include the beginning picking part.  One
guitarist is playing an
electric with the bass turned way up and some reverb.  Another guitarist is playing a
slide guitar.
I'll update this tab with the slide guitar part if I can figure it out with a friend's help.
As always, let me know in the comments if you find any errors.

[Fun fact] If you play D like this, you'll preserve those cool dissonant bass
string tones.  There's also two ways to play A for their base notes.
     D  A  A
e| --5--0--5-- |
B| --7--3--5-- |
G| --7--3--6-- |
D| --7--3--7-- |
A| --5--0--7-- |
E| --5--0--5-- |

[Verse 2]
      Bm       D        A
Early frost is bound to kill
            Bm        D       E
Leaves will fall just like my will
    (F#m)    Bm              (Estring)F#m
I've lost my faith and I can't break  free
        Bm      D     A     A    A    A
Take me back to yesterday

[Chorus 1]
    F#m               D
       Yesterday when you were mine and
    F#m                      D
        life was full and we were finding
    F#m                  D                Bm
       All the ways that lovers try to be

[Chorus 2]
    F#m               D
       Yesterday when all we knew was
    F#m                   D
       you're with me and I'm with you and
    F#m            D           E
    forever didn't seem so far away

[Verse 3]
         Bm         D     A
Now this dark night of my soul
           Bm        D     E
have these tears out of control
  (F#m)      Bm          (Estring)F#m
Oh why can't I  get  love   to   stay
        Bm      D     A
Take me back to yesterday

[Chorus 3]
    F#m                D
       Yesterday where did you go? There's
    F#m               D
       so much more I need to know
    F#m                             D  A  E
       You were here and now you've flown away

[Verse 4]
         Bm     /D      A
There is so much that I miss
         Bm     /D       E
Like the whisper of your kiss
    (F#m)    Bm               F#m
Like all the words I meant to say
        Bm       D    A
Take me back
        Bm       D    A
Take me back
           Bm      D(let ring)
Oh take me back to yester--day
