Great tab, best one for this song and one of the better tabs out there just in general. However, I am pretty sure that there's more to the chorus. I think it goes more like:

G ---------------- -------------------|
D ---------------- -------------------|
A ---35553---35-32 ---35553---3-------|
E 555-----555--3-- 555-----555-111111-|

Stupendous tab! I think most of times I've heard it Klaus seems to mix up the 4th and 5th easy/detailed parts, like start with the easy and end the phrase on the more detailed.
