IMPORTANT!!!!

The first thing you need to know about this song is that the guitar is tuned
down a half step. Therefore, E is E flat, A is A flat and so on. If you don't
want to tune your guitar down, then you'll just have to look up another version
which is probably wrong. I'll show you the part in the tab which requires you
to tune your guitar down. Or you could just play the tabs anyway, without the
right note. I'm just picky about these things.

Oh yea, and listen to the song for the correct rythym of strumming.

Intro: Play 4x

e|--------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------|
G|-----9--9-9-9--9-9--7-7-7-------------------|
D|-----9--9-9-9--9-9--7-7-7--7--7-7-7---------|
A|-----7--7-7-7--7-7--5-5-5--7--7-7-7---------|
E|---------------------------5--5-5-5---------|

Verse: Play 2x

e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9--9--9-9-9--7--7-7--7-7-7--9--9-9--9-9-9-9-9-----|
D|-----9--9--9-9-9--7--7-7--7-7-7--9--9-9--9-9-9-9-9-----|
A|-----7--7--7-7-7--5--5-5--5-5-5--7--7-7--7-7-7-7-7-----|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9--9--9-9-9--7--7-7--7-7-7------------------------------------|
D|-----9--9--9-9-9--7--7-7--7-7-7--5--5--5-5-5--9-9-9--9-9-9-9-------|
A|-----7--7--7-7-7--5--5-5--5-5-5--5--5--5-5-5--9-9-9--9-9-9-9-------|
E|---------------------------------3--3--3-3-3--7-7-7--7-7-7-7-------|

Verse End: Just add this on to the end of the verse the second time you play it

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------|
D|--5--5--5-5-5--9-9-9--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9----|
A|--5--5--5-5-5--9-9-9--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9----|
E|--3--3--3-3-3--7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7----|

Chorus: Repeat 2x. This is the part which requires the half step tuning.

e|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------5--5-5-5--5-5----|
D|--2--2--2-2-2--5--5-5-5--5-5--7--7--7-7-7--5--5-5-5--5-5----|
A|--2--2--2-2-2--5--5-5-5--5-5--7--7--7-7-7--3--3-3-3--3-3----|
E|--0--0--0-0-0--3--3-3-3--3-3--5--5--5-5-5-------------------|

Chorus Part 2

e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--2--2--2-2-2--5--5-5-5--5-5--9--9--9-9-9--9--9-9--9-9-9---|
A|--2--2--2-2-2--5--5-5-5--5-5--9--9--9-9-9--9--9-9--9-9-9---|
E|--0--0--0-0-0--3--3-3-3--3-3--5--5--5-5-5--5--5-5--5-5-5---|

End Chorus: Play this after you play the first part of the chorus the second time
instead of chorus part 2.

e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|--5--5--5--5-5--9---|
A|--5--5--5--5-5--9---|
E|--3--3--3--3-3--7---|

If you play it without the proper tuning, and you play the right note, you'd be
starting the song with:

|-----------|
|-----------|
|--8--6-----|
|--8--6--6--|
|--6--4--6--|
|--------4--|

Instead of what I have. And if you do it that way, the lowest note in the chorus
won't be possible. If you try it with out the tuning it will be like 1-1-0, and
that of course won't work. Now back to the song.

1. Repeat Intro 2x

2. Play Verse

3. Play Chorus

4. Repeat Intro 2x

Bridge Part 1:
e|----------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------|
A|---7-----------------------------10-9-8-7-----|
E|-----------7----8-7-5-7-8-7-------------------|

Bridge Part 2: (x means scratch) Repeat as much as needed
e|-------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------|
D|---x-x-13--x-x-16--x-x-15--x-x-14----|
A|---x-x-13--x-x-16--x-x-15--x-x-14----|
E|-------------------------------------|

1. Play Verse

2. Play Chorus

3. Repeat Intro 4x

You CAN play it without de-tuning. All you have to do is mute the open E string:
D|--1--
A|--1--
E|--X--
Since you've still got the root and fifth, it's STILL a powerchord! All that changes is now the fifth is the lowest note. Makes NO difference.
