I would say that I'm 100% sure that this is correct. 50% of it is my own work, while
the other 45% goes to someone I know and about 5% I found on the internet (hope the
person doesn't mind, but I did only used a little bit, most of it was the same as what
I had anyway)
But anyway here it is so enjoy!

Tuning: Drop D

[Intro]
e-----------------------------------R
B-----------------------------------E
G---------11----------------11------P till the verse
D--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-E
A--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-A
D--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-T

there is another little guitar part that guitar 2 plays right after the intro going
into the verse but i havn't tabbed it(sorry)

  [Verse]
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------| it's actually exactly the same as the
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-| intro, but I thought i'd put the verse
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-| down seperatly anyway
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

  Then theres like a little fill later half way through the verse when he sings: "Someone
  who cares"
E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|--------11--------------------------|
D|-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
A|-9-12-9--9-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
D|-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

  Then continue playing the verse:
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-| 
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

  end of the verse:
E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|--------11--------------------------|
D|-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
A|-9-12-9--9-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
D|-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

  [Bridge]
  "Feeling unknown and you're all alone..."
E|-----------------------------------------|
B|-7-----7-----10-----15-----12------14----|
G|-X-----X-----X-------X------X-------X----|
D|-4-----4-----7------12------9------11----|
A|-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------|

  Then after he sings
  "I'll make you a believer" theres another little fill that guitar2 plays:
E|--------|
B|--------|
G|--11~~~-| just hold the note for
D|--------| like 2 seconds.
A|--------|
D|--------|

  While guitar 1 just goes on playing the main riff (intro/verse):
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

  New verse:
  "Take second best,put me to the test"
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

  First guitar plays main riff:
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

while guitar 2 plays the little fill:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-|
--------|
--------|

  [Chorus]
  "reach out and touch faith"
E|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|-----------------11-------------11----|
D|-6----5----4-7-4-11--7-4--4-7-4-11--7-|
A|-6----5----4-7-4--9--7-4--4-7-4--9--7-|
D|-6----5----4-7-4-----7-4--4-7-4-----7-|

  [Verse]
  "Your own personal Jesus"
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

  then again half way through the verse play:
  "someone who cares..."
E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|--------11--------------------------|
D|-9-12-9-11-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
A|-9-12-9--9-12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|
D|-9-12-9----12-9--7--7-7-7--6--6-6-6-|

  then carry on playing this:
  "your own, personal Jesus.."
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

during the verse guitar2 plays the little fill again:
--------|
--------|
--11~~~-|
--------|
--------|

  "Someone to hear your prayers"
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---------11----------------11------|
D|--4-7-4--11--7-4----4-7-4--11--7-4-|
A|--4-7-4--9---7-4----4-7-4--9---7-4-|
D|--4-7-4------7-4----4-7-4------7-4-|

  [Chorus]
  "reach out and touch faith"
E|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|-----------------11-------------11----|
D|-6----5----4-7-4-11--7-4--4-7-4-11--7-|
A|-6----5----4-7-4--9--7-4--4-7-4--9--7-|
D|-6----5----4-7-4-----7-4--4-7-4-----7-|

then on the drum beat:
---------------R
---------------E
---------------P strum the same as
-XXX-XXX-XXX-X-E drum rhythm

The intro is wrong for 2 reasons:
1)The notes are wrong
2)Tim plays single notes instead of powerchords (you can see that when he plays it live)

The intro goes like:

(riff1)
d------------------
a-----------4------
D--2--5--2-----5--2

It also plays an off beat E every other time, like this:

(Riff 2)
d-------------------
a-----------4-------
D--22--5--2-----5--2

so about 10-11 sec into the song after manson says reach out and touch faith the guitar line goes:

riff 1, riff 2, riff 1, riff 2 etc etc till the guitar line changes, when manson sings: Someone to hear your prayers, someone who cares

sorry if that is confusing lol, but you might find it sounds better
