Okay, so far there hasn't been a really good tab for this song, so I decided to take a

Here it goes.

Outro is just the chorus, clean.

And thats the whole song. I'm pretty sure its very close to 100% accurate.

instead of
G-6---5---6---5---6---5---6---5--|
D-6---5---6---5---6---5---6---5--|
A-4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3--|
E--------------------------------|
I'm playing
G-6---5---6---5---6---5---6---5--|
D-6---6---6---6---6---6---6---6--|
A-4---3---4---3---4---3---4---3--|
E--------------------------------|
and it sounds a bit more like the song, and in the chorus, I play this:
W Q+E E+H W
G--3-----|-----------6-6----|---------------|
D--3-----|--6-6------6-6----|-4-------------|
A--1-----|--6-6------4-4----|-4-------------|
E--------|--4-4-------------|-2-------------|
how do I break the news to you

and it sounds a little more accurate.

I want to post or [tab]
