I have made one mistake on the song. I think it's the bridge. It should go like this:

e--------------------------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------------------------
g----------------------------------9--9--9--9-9-9--10-10-10-10-10-10
d--7--7--7--7-7-7--8--8--8--8-8-8--9--9--9--9-9-9--10-10-10-10-10-10
a--7--7--7--7-7-7--8--8--8--8-8-8--7--9--9--7-7-7---8--8--8--8--8--8
e--5--5--5--5-5-5--6--6--6--6-6-6-----------------------------------

Sorry, fot the mistake.
