Finally figured the chords out! There are a few little inconsistent things that Vic 
does, but I'll give you a basis and you'll figure it out from there. :)

And please don't kill me over this, but I'm not going to bother much with the strumming 
patterns, but I'll throw in a little commentary to try and help. :)

Tuning: Drop C#

  [Intro]
D#|-0----0-----0--0--0----|
A#|-0----0-----0--0--0----|
F#|-7----6----11--6--4----|  x2
C#|-0----0-----0--0--0----|
G#|-9----7----12--7--5----|
C#|-9----7----12--7--5----|

  [Verse]
D#|-0----0-----0--0--0----|
A#|-0----0-----0--0--0----|
F#|-7----6----11--6--4----|
C#|-0----0-----0--0--0----|
G#|-9----7----12--7--5----|
C#|-9----7----12--7--5----|

D#|-0-----0-----0----0----|
A#|-0-----0-----0----0----|
F#|-7-----9----11----4----|
C#|-0-----0-----0----0----|
G#|-9----12----12----5----|
C#|-9----11----12----5----|

He does the whole "palm-mute/strum" thing on the verse. It's pretty easy to figure out 
the pattern, so just listen to it. :) Then at the end he strums the last two chords, then 
mutes all the strings to go into the chorus.


  [Chorus]
D#|-x----x----x----x----|
A#|-x----0----7----0----|
F#|-7----3----x----3----|
C#|-4----2----4----2----|
G#|-5----4----5----4----|
C#|-0----x----0----x----|

He switches chords here a little off, but you'll get it no problem if you just listen. :)

D#|--------------|
A#|--------------|
F#|-2-----0------|
C#|-2-----0------|   (he might move the 5-4-0-0 up to a 5-5-0-0 really quick)
G#|-5-----4------|
C#|-5-----5------|

He sings "go in style" right here.
He strums these the same as the intro.

The chorus is what I meant about the "little inconsistencies"..
The chords are basically like what I have here, BUT he randomly won't strum the whole 
chord sometimes, or he'll mute the open notes or things like that.
I put the "x"s in those chords up there, because he mutes those sometimes, but again, if 
you just listen.. You will get it pretty easily. :)
If none of this is making any sense, just play these chords how you feel is best.

After the chorus, he does the intro one time.
Then the next verse comes.

[Verse 2]

The first half, he just strums each chord once and them plays a beat on the guitar.
The second half with the palm muting is like this:

D#|---------------------------------|
A#|---------------------------------|
F#|---------------------------------|
C#|------------------------5--------|
G#|-9------12------12------5--------|
C#|-9------11------12------5--------|

Palm mute the first three, then just strum the last one.

D#|--------------------|
A#|--------------------|
F#|-7-----9-----4------|
C#|-0-----0-----0------|
G#|-9----12-----5------|
C#|-9----11-----5------|

Then he mutes the last chord and sings "anyone" then goes into the next part.

[Chorus]
And when he says "It'll be alright" at the end of the second chorus, he plays this chord..

D#|-----|
A#|-----|
F#|-----|
C#|-8---|
G#|-5---|
C#|-5---|

Next is the bridge! :D
He just strums these same four chords a couple different ways, so I'm just going to give 
you the chords.
Except for one little thing! The first time he does the first chord, I believe he only 
strums the three low strings.

  [Bridge]
D#|-x----x-----x---------|
A#|-7----x-----x---------|
F#|-x----6-----7----7----|
C#|-4----7-----9----8----|
G#|-5----9----10----9----|
C#|-0----9-----9----9----|

And now, the last chorus... It's the same chords, he just strums them a little 
differently in the second half, but you'll figure it out easily. :)
So, it's the chorus chords, then finish it off by strumming that "It'll be alright" chord...
Then the last chord he does is just a D (well, technically a C# because we're tuned 
lower) :)

D#|-2-------2--------2-----------------|
A#|-3-------------------3--------------|
F#|-2----------------------2--0--------|
C#|-0-----------------------------2/4--|
G#|-0-----------------------------0----|
C#|-0-----------------------------0----|

All done! Just one last thing I would like to point out...
Whenever you see these 2 chords:

D#|-x-------x-----|
A#|-x-------7-----|
F#|-7-------x-----|
C#|-4-------4-----|
G#|-5-------5-----|
C#|-0-------0-----|

You could just use this one for both of them:

D#|--x--|
A#|--7--|
F#|--7--|
C#|--4--|
G#|--5--|
C#|--0--|

It just really didn't look like his fingers were doing that, but you can do whatever you 
feel is best. :)

Thanks! I hope all this made sense, and I hope it's accurate enough for you guys. Ask 
any question you want, rate, comment, whatever! <3
