Feel free to ask my any questions, as this is my first completed tab and Im still 
on it, but I feel that it's worth presenting

It's from this video, a live, acoustic version, so if compared with the album version 
tab might be off time wise

Tuning: Half step down (Eb)
[Alternating Gs]  Am  G  Cadd9 Cmaj7
e|--------------------3-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------1--3---3-----0-------------------------------------|
G|--0--0--0--0-----2--0---0-----0-------------------------------------|
D|-----------------2--0---2-----2-------------------------------------|
A|-----------------0--2---3-----3-------------------------------------|
E|-3--3--3--3---------3-----------------------------------------------|

 Youll continue with the alternating Gs and thats the verse, the 2nd guitar strums a G 
occasionally and I think he might strum a C too, its kind of hard to tell

Those chords are for the chorus and the beginning as well, I think he ends on a G, its a 
short G, because the Cmaj7 is played for most of the measure, and from that G he goes 
into the alternating Gs

This part below is what Chuckie plays, I guess in-between verses, its not hard to notice.
e|-----10----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--/12-----10-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------12----9--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------12---9-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------12----10------10----------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------12---12-10------------------------------------------------|
 This part mirrors Ians lyrics (I love your face the way it moves) I havent been able to 
it out completely, so this is the best I can come up with, but it should work
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----0--2--0--2--4--2--0----------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------0-------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--------------------------------------------------|
The last two notes could instead be played with a G chord at the end, if you want

 I just realized Chuckie plays something like this, that F# is distinctly in there. I 
it at:34 seconds. At first I thought it was a D chord, but it didnt sound right, so this 
what I came up with
e|---2-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---3-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---0-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---0-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---0-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
