A great song off Grippe. Enjoy!

Intro - Drum intro, bass and guitar come at the same time.

G|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-5---------------| let G (5) ring.
A|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-3-------3-------|-----------------|

This is played a few times. Then the intro changes to:

G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|

Keep playing G and then this is played into the verse

G|------|
D|------|
A|------|
E|-3--5-|

Verse - The verse has two main parts. The first is the Bb part - listen to the song to 
work out how many bars of it there is (i think there is four) - alternatively play Bb on 
1st fret on A.

G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|

Second part is the G part. It isn't played as straight as below, leave some rests 
between notes, add different notes in, octaves etc. Some examples below.

G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-------------5---|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------1-----|-----------------|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-3-3-3-3-3-3---3-|-1h3-3-3-3---3-1-|-3-x-x-3-x-3-3-x-|

Then it segues into the Bridge

G|-----------------|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-0---------------| Let open E ring.

Bridge - There are two parts here. The bass starts by itself playing -

G|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-3-3-3-3---------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|---------3-3-3-3-|

Then when the singing starts to come in -

G|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-5-5-5-5---------|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|---------5-5-5-5-|

Then it goes back to -

G|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-3-3-3-3---------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|---------3-3-3-3-|

The last time it goes -

G|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-3-3-------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-----------------|

Then back into the verse - Bb.

The verse is then repeated then at the closing of the song. Bb is held then it closes 
with two G notes -

G|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-6---------------|-3-3-------------|

That's it!
