Thought I'd post how I think the first verse of the song is played (not quite 100% sure).
I want to thank Nick Taylor who did chord this song which my tab is based around, and Frank 
for writing the song. Buy his album. Enough rambling.

Any correction please mention in comments or email me at Trofficus@hotmail.com

Verse
Em                                C
Everybody's Got Themselves A Plan
G                                  D
Everybody thinks they'll be the man,
D
including the girls.
Em                                              C
The musicians who lack the friends to form a band,
C
are singer songwriters.
G                               D
The rest of us are dj's, or official club photographers.
Em                                          C
And tonight im playing another Nambucca show,
G                                         D
so im going though my phonebook texting everyone i know
             Em                                      C
and quite a few i dont know who numbers found their way into my phone
           G
but they might come along anyway
 D
you never really know.


Bridge

G                      Dsus4           Em7
None of this is going anywhere
    C                      D
Pretty soon we'll all be old
G                      Dsus4                  Em7
and no one left alive will really care
    C
about our glory days, when we sold our souls.


Chorus

D
But if your all about the destination,
Em                        C
then take a fucking flight.
D
We're going nowhere slowly
Em                         D
but we're seeing all the sights
         C          G           D*
and we're definitely going to hell.
            G               D              C
But we'll have all the best stories to tell.


Ending
     C          G          D
Yes I'm definitely going to Hell,
              G            D             G
but I'll have all the best stories to tell.

near the end of the song:


G D C
But we'll have all the best stories to tell.

should be:

G D Em D
But we'll have all the best stories to tell.


but thankyou for the otherwise perfect tab ^^

pretty much spot on. you can actually get a printout of his handwritten tab from his website which is almost exactly the same but with one or two corrections. only minor ones though.
