The other versions of this song are slightly off, this is exactly how Keith plays it acoustic.

He improvises all his live acoustic performances 'cause he's just a stud like that, so he
may not do the riff everywhere that it occurs in the studio version, but for this tab I will
be putting the riff as it aligns with the studio version. When I play the song I pick the
intro two times, then strum two times, then go into the verse. When I play the riff amongst
the verses I always strum it.

After "shining down on me and you" in the chorus, Keith plays the E shape of the B and A
chords (basically the barre chord without the barre) and finishes the run back at E.

Note each run of the riff lasts two measures (4 beats per).

Intro (picking):

-----0-----------0---------0-----------0-------|
----0-0------0 ----0------0--0------0----0-----|
8h9-----9/11---11----11/13----13/14--14----- --|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|

Intro (strumming):
Play while strumming the three highest strings

There's a new wind blowing like I've never known
I'm breathing deeper than I've ever done
       Asus2                                        E
And it sure feels good to finally feel the way I do
        B              Asus2
I wanna love somebody, love somebody like you.

E
And I'm letting go of all my lonely yesterdays
I've forgiven myself for the mistakes I've made
           Asus2
Now theres just one thing, the only thing I wanna do

Yeah I wanna feel the sunshine shining down on me and you
                       Asus2
When you put your arms around me
                                       C#m           Asus2/F#
You let me know theres nothing in this world I can't do

E
I used to run in circles going no where fast
I'd take one step forward end up two steps back
           Asus2
I couldn't walk a straight line even if I wanted to

                                       C#m           Asus2/F#(hold)
You let me know theres nothing in this world I can't do

E
Sometimes it's hard for me to understand
But you're teaching me to be a better man
               Asus2                                          E     
I don't want to take this life for granted like I used to do
        B              Asus2                 E
I wanna love somebody, love somebody like you.
             B              Asus2                 E
I'm ready to love somebody, love somebody like you
            B              Asus2 (hold)
And I wanna love somebody, love somebody like you 

(Strum this differently than the normal riff)

How about this:

Intro (strumming):
Play while strumming the three highest strings
