Here is the way I play Death Cab for Cutie's Photobooth.  I learned it by listening to 
live at KCRW on Youtube.  Not sure if I'm 100% correct at the end of the chorus though.

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
I remember when the days were long
and the nights when the living room was on the lawn
constant quarreling and childish fits
and the clothes in a pile on the ottoman
All the Slander and the double speak
just foolish attempts to show you did not mean
anything but the Blatant proof
were you lips touching mine in the photobooth

Chorus 1:
And as the Summer's ending
the cool air will rush your hard heart away
you were so condescending
and this is all thats left
scraping paper to documents
I packed a change of clothes
and its time to move on

Verse 2:
Cup your mouth to compress the sound
skinny dipping with the kids from a nearby town
and everything that I said was true
as the flashes blinded us in the photobooth
I lost track and those words were said
you took the wheel and you steered us in to my bad
as we woke and I walked you home
it was pretty clear that this was hardly love

Chorus 2:
And as the Summer's ending
the cold air will rush your hard heart away
you were so condescending
and this is all thats left
scraping paper to documents
I packed a change of clothes
and its time to move on

Chorus 3:
And as the Summer's ending
the cold air will rush your hard heart away
you were so condescending
As the alcohol drained the day
And as the Summer's ending
the cold air will rush your hard heart away
and this is all that's left
empty bottles spent cigarettes
I packed a change of clothes
and its time to move on

Thanks! This was my first tab. Took me forever :)

I'm practicing tabbing things by ear now, so hopefully I will be getting faster at it as I go.

This is the exact way he plays the verse and chorus ending. Watched the video and you can tell how he plays.
