This song is a cover of Thin Lizzy's classic The Boys Are Back In Town and was played at 
Princes Trust event 2006 by Mcfly. The video can be downloaded at http://www.dougie-poynter.com/

I have listened to the song many times to get this right so im pretty sure everything sounds ok.

A5                 C#m
Guess who just got back today
D                            Fsus4
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
C#m7                     Fsus4
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
D                           E11
But man, I still think them cats are crazy
A5                     C#m
They were asking if you were around
D                   Fsus4
How you was, where you could be found
C#m7                      Fsus4
Told them you were living downtown
D                   E11
Driving all the old men crazy

Verse 2
A5                               C#m
You know that chick that used to dance a lot
D                               Fsus4
Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she'd got
C#m7                      Fsus4
Man when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot
D              E11
I mean she was steaming
A5                    C#m
And that time over at Johnny's place
D                               Fsus4
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
C#m7               Fsus
Man we just fell about the place
D                               E11
If that chick don't want to know, forget her

The song is actually, in flat tuning, so your tab sounds a half-step sharp. Adjusted for flat tuning, however, sounds good.
