There are no DNTEL tabs, but they're a real group. The guy who sings this song is Ben
Gibbard of The Postal Service.

Dntel - "(This Is) The Dream Of Evan And Chan"

Standard E A D G B E tuning tuned down
1/2 step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)


Chords: 
A - [x02220 or 577600]
D - [x57700 or x00232]
C#- [x46600 or 9x9900]
F#- [x44200 or 244x00]


Intro: [A, D, C#, F#] x2


A         D
it was familiar to me, the smoke too thick to breathe

C#      F#
 the tile floors glistened, I slowly sipped my drink

A        D
and when he started to sing, you spoke with broken speech

C#        F#
 that I could not understand, and then you grabbed me tightly


A    F#
I won't let go, I won't let go

A         F#
even if you say so, oh no

A         F#
I've tried and tried with no results

A   F#
I won't let go, I won't let go


Interlude: [A, F#] x2 [A, D, C#, F#] x1


A          D
he then played every song from 1993

C#   F#
 the crowd applauded as he curtsied bashfully

A          D
your eyelashes tickled my neck with every nervous blink

C#      F#
 and it was perfect until the telephone started


A         D
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off

C#         F#
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off


A         D
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off

C#         F#
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off


A         D
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off

C#         F#
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off


A   D      C#
   ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off

F#         A
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off


D         C#   F#
ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing, ringing off


I don't know how you should end the song.
I'd recommend ending either on an A or F#.
I doubt you'd want to keep repeating the "ringing" part though.
Without the background drums and beats it gets really repetitive.
I'd just mess around with it for a bit and see what happens.

Seems like the C# and F# are incorrect. Also, your chords are way out of place.

Yup, definately minor. also, the chords are a bit out of place but this tab isnt that bad. I mean, this is for the dntel version of the song and the other tab is for the ben gibbard acoustic version, so its hard to compare, but i like this tab better. Its way easier to play and it still sounds decent

I want to post or [tab]
