This is a simple song that has little one note changes at the end of every riff. 
Riff A and B are to be used during the Verses.I labled the two different riffs 
he plays and when you should play them.

Order For Song:
  Intro
  Verse 1
  Transition To Chorus
  Chorus x3
  Verse 2
  Transition To Chorus
  Chorus x4

The Order for the Intro and the Verse is A,B,A,B,A,B,A,A,A,B

        e|-------------------------------------|
        B|-------------------------------------|         
        G|-------------------------------------|
Riff B  D|---------------------------7---------|
        A|---4---4/7-7-------4---4/9---9-------|
        E|-5---5-------0-0-2---2---------9-----|

        e|-------------------------------------|
        B|-------------------------------------|
        G|-------------------------------------|
Riff A  D|-------------------------------------|
        A|---4---4/7-7-------4---4/9-9---------|
        E|-5---5-------0-0-2---2-------7\5-----|



The Transition into the chorus is almost the same as Riff B
with a different ending.




           e|---------------------------------------------|
Transition B|---------------------------------------------|
    to     G|---------------------------------------------|
  Chorus   D|---------------------------7------------6----|
           A|---4---4/7-7-------4---4/9---9-9-7-7-7----7--|
           E|-5---5-------0-0-2---2-----------------------|
 




        e|-----------------------------------|
        B|-----------------------------------|
Chorus  G|---4/6-----------------------------|X 3
        D|-------7---7---7---4---4---6---6---| 
        A|-0-------5---5---2---2---7---7-----|
        E|-----------------------------------|

        

The Second Verse uses the two riffs differently than the first verse.

Verse 2: Play Riff A,B,A,B,A,B,A,B,A,B After This play the transition once more 
then go to the chorus and play it 4 times. on the 4th time end by 
playing the A string.
