I have seen tabs all around the place for this song and most of them were in the wrong 
or the capo in the wrong place.  So I took the time to listen to the song and analyze it 
and this is the CORRECT tab.

CAPO; Third Fret.
Standard tuning.

Best Boats and Birds tab

As it is, this is very incorrect, you may want to edit the tab so that all the notes are relative to the capo, not just the open strings.

All tabs i've seen are very accurate and you'd expect them to be for this song, but there are different note positions, these aren't my preference but it's most detailed so it's good in that way.
