Yeah, it's right, but the very same like the tabs before ;)

The other tab claims to be in drop D, when there's no need for it to be, so I prefer this one
Nice work :^)

Very good tab, but I've spotted two small mistakes. One quite obvious, the other not so much (but I'm pretty sure I've got it right).
Firstly, at the start of the second verse, instead of playing two Gs (10th fret), play a G flat first (9th fret). Like so (this is the obvious mistake):

G|-------------------------------------12----------16-------17-17-16-------14----------------|
D|-----10------------------12----------------14-14----14-14----------12-12----12-12----------|
A|------------7-8-9-10-10-----10-10-10----10-------------------------------------------------|
E|-8-8----8-8-----------------------------------------------------------------------10-10-9--|

The second, not so obvious mistake, or rather what I'm hearing (and based on the start of the second verse, I'd assume this is how it'd have been written) is at the end of the little run down before the last chorus, I think it matches the second verse. I've taken it into a DAW and EQd it as much as possible but it's still really hard to tell, but I reckon it's this:

G|-----5--------------------------12-------------16-------17-17-16-------14-----------------|
D|-----------------------12-------------12-14-14----14-14----------12-12----12-12-----------|
A|-3-3---3-3-7-8-9-10-10----10-10----10-----------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------10-10-9---|
