I didn't see the 100 % correct tab up here, so I figured I'd put my transcribtion up 
I don't know if it's right, but my friends say it sounds exact. My timing might be a bit 
this is my first tab, but guitarists improvise. Email me if you see any errors.

Lyrics

Verse
Well, you win, it's your show now,
So what's it gonna be?
Cause people will tune in.
How many train wrecks do we need to see
before we lose touch
Oh, and we thought this was low.
Well it's bad, getting worse oh.

Chorus
Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow.

Verse
They got this and that with a rattle a tat
Testing one, two.
Man whatcha gonna do?
Bad news, misused, got too much to lose.
Gimme some truth, now who's side are we on?
What every you say.
turn on the boob tube
I'm  in the mood to obey.
So lead me astray.
And by the way...

Chorus
Where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels
I don't see them on the TV shows.
Where'd all the good people go?

Interlude/Bridge
Sitting 'round feeling far away, yeah
So far away, but I can feel the debris
Can you feel it?
You interupt me from a friendly conversation
to tell me how great it's all gonna be.
You might notice some hesitation
'cause it's important to you
It's not important to me.
Mmm mmmm mmm mmmm
Way down by the edge of your reason
Well it'sb eginning to show
And all I wanna know is where'd all the good people go?
I've been changing channels, I don't see them on the TV shows
Where'd all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow.
They got this and that with arattle a tat.
Testing, one, two.
Man, whatcha gonna do?
Bad news misused, give me some truth.
You got too much to lose.
Who's side are we on today anyway?
Okay, whatever you say.
Wrong or resolute but in the mood to obey.
Station to station, desensitizing the nation.
Going, going, gone.

Listen to the song for the timing and structure of the song.

This is the best I could do for my first time, so some things may be a bit shakey. Email 
if you find anything.

The intro is a bit shifty

The part with bend 9 has to be G and D side

your intro has two problems: first, it's only the first half. Secondly, what you have tabbed is right, but just on the wrong strings. it should be moved one string down...try playing it both ways. You'll see what I mean. (You start on the second string, when it's really on the third) Overall, not bad
