Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
It's not 100% Standard Tuning because i just tuned E as D#, and since it's just that one 
not Drop D# Tuning, so it goes like: D# A D G B e

D#5: 0  1 1 - - -|
E5:  1  2 2 - - -|
F#5: 3  4 4 - - -|
G#5: 5  6 6 - - -|
B5:  8  9 9 - - -|

For the Intro in every chord change u can play just the D# without the other 2 notes of 
power cord ^^!

Here's the example i know if u listen to the song u'll get it right! ^^ yes i'm sorry 
the weird tunning :P but u understand what a pain in the ass it's tunning and re-tunning 
guitar all the time :S

D/  9 9 9 9 9 9 9 - 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 - 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
A/  9 9 9 9 9 9 9 - 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 - 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
D#/ 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 0 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

[Verse 1]
B5                          F#5
  They’re pickin’ up pieces of me,
                                 E5
While they’re pickin’ up pieces of you.
                                           B5
In a bag you will be, before the day is over.
                                F#5
Were you looking for somewhere to be.
                         E5
Or looking for someone to do.
                                                    D#5
Stupid me, to believe that I could trust in stupid you.
                    E5
And on the back of my hand,
    D#5                      E5
Were, directions I could understand.
D#5                              E5
   Now that old buzzard Johnny Walker,
D#5                           E5
   Has gone and ruined all our plans.
                  B5
Our best-made plans.

[Chorus]
                 F#5                   G#5
Don’t leave me here, to cast through time,
           D#5              B5
Without a map, or road sign.
                 F#5               G#5
Don’t leave me here, my guiding light,
        D#5      E5                        D#5
‘Cause I...  I...    wouldn’t know where to begin.
E5                        D#5
  I asked the Kings of Medicine.

[Verse 2]
B5                            F#5
  They’re pickin’ up pieces of me,
                                  E5
While they’re pickin’ up pieces of you.
                                                B5
Lying on ice you will be before the day is over.
B5                      F#5
  It’s a case in point baby,
                            E5
That you never thought it through.
                                             D#5
Stupid me, that I could depend on stupid you.
                    E5
And on the tip of my tongue,
    D#5                       E5
Were, words that always came out all wrong.
D#5                                   E5         D#5
   ‘Cause they were drowned in Southern Comfort,
                        E5
Left to dry-out in the Sun,

The noon-day Sun.

[Chorus]
                 F#5                   G#5
Don’t leave me here, to cast through time,
           D#5              B5
Without a map, or road sign.
                 F#5               G#5
Don’t leave me here, my guiding light,
        D#5      E5                        D#5
‘Cause I...  I...    wouldn’t know where to begin.
E5                        D#5
  I asked the Kings of Medicine.

   F#5                   G#5
Don’t leave me here, to cast through time,
           D#5              B5
Without a map, or road sign.
                 F#5               G#5
Don’t leave me here, my guiding light,
        D#5      E5                        D#5
‘Cause I...  I...    wouldn’t know where to begin.
E5                        D#5
  I asked the Kings of Medicine.

[Outro]
E5                                 D#5
   But it seems that they’ve lost their powers.
E5                          D#5
  Now all I’m left with is the hour.

B5               F#5       G#5       D#5
  Don’t leave me here,

B5               F#5          G#5        D#5
   Don’t leave me here, oh no-oh,
E5                                 D# <------ Just the bass note  :P
I wouldn’t know where to begin.

I just tabbed this out myself and saw that someone had already posted it :O
I got the same thing as you did, albeit I tuned down to D and shaped the chords the 'usual' way ;D... The tuning is weird, but if you play the chords the way the original tabber did it it's right :D

The only part you missed is the octave part at the end of the song before the final chorus where he just strums:
E|------|
B|------|
G|-9-8--|
D|-x-x--|
A|-7-6--|
D|------|

Great Tab, I'm not being bitchy but in the youtube link;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMqqRRpVRpw
Its the acoustic version, he plays in standard and he plays the Eb5 on the 11th fret and uses standard power cord shapes.

I can understand that you were making it extremely easy with the least amount of fretting hand movement.
