Capo on 4th Fret
Time Signature is 4/4

Key

\ = Slide Down
x = Palm Mute
* = Thumb Tap
^ = Upstrum

Saw this video the other day and I thought Mat did an amazing job covering this song.
Most of the chords I found were pretty decent but didn't really sound 100% correct.
I'm almost positive this is what he plays

[Verse 1]
My baby don't mess around
Because she loves me so
And this I know for shooo..
Uh, But does she really wanna
But can't stand to see me
Walk out the dooor..
Don't try to fight the feelin'
Because the thought alone is killing me right nooww..
Uh, thank god for mom and dad
For sticking two together
'Cause we don't know hooowww...
UH!

welll, there's not very much to the song to tab out, but you really didn't get very much... it ends on Am7 instead of your G6(add11), and you forgot to indicate the time signatures, which aren't 4/4 all the way...
