[Standard Tuning]
Note: The song from the CD has 2 guitars.  I've added "Alternate" sections
of some parts of the song which you can use if you have another guitarist.  

Intro (Acoustic)
Chord is repeated a bunch of times (listen to the CD).
e-----|
b-----|
g--3--|   
d--3--|
a--1--|
E-----|


Verse (Distortion)
e------------------------------| 
b------------------------------|
g------------------------------|
d--4--4-4----------------------|  x 2 then play Intro chord
a--4--4-4---3-4-6-4-3-3h4-4----|
E--2--2-2----------------------|

**See Note at bottom

Pre-Chorus (Distortion)
e-----|            -----|            ------| 
b-----|            -----|            ------|
g--6--| x 16 then  --8--|  x 8 then  --11--|  x 8
d--6--|            --8--|            --11--| 
a--4--|            --6--|            ---9--| 
E-----|            -----|            ------| 


Chorus (Distortion)
e-----|            -----|     
b-----|            -----|     
g--6--| x 16 then  --3--|  x 16    then repeat entire Chorus
d--6--|            --3--|     
a--4--|            --1--|     
E-----|            -----|     


Post-Chorus (Distortion)
e--------------------------------------| 
b--------------------------------------|
g--------------------------------------|
d--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--4-4-4-3-3-3-3h4----|  x 3
a--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---------------------|
E--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------|

e--------------------------------------| 
b--------------------------------------|
g-------------------3-3-3-1-1-1-1h3-3--|
d--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------------------3--|
a--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4------------------1--|
E--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---------------------|

That's it!  The rest of the song is the same with a couple of small differences
which are easy to figure out.  I can tab these out if there is a demand for
them.  Keep reading for variations on the verse.


Alternate Verse I (Distortion)
e------------------------------| 
b------------------------------|
g-----------5-6-8-6-5-5h6-6----|
d--4--4-4----------------------|  x 2 then play Intro chord
a--4--4-4----------------------|
E--2--2-2----------------------|

Alternate Verse II (Distortion)
You will notice that one guitar always plays the verse this way.  It's much too
boring for me though so I play the other verses.
e-----|
b-----|
g-----|
d--4--|  x 16? then play Intro chord
a--4--|
E--2--|

**Note: After you play the very first verse and when you switch back to the intro
chord, play this: 
e-----|                   -4-
b-----|                   ---
g--3--| a few times then  ---  (Soft acoustic in the background)   
d--3--|                   --- 
a--1--|                   ---
E-----|                   ---

Just posting two parts that dan forgot.

The first is in the beginning. Where the 2nd guitar plays this:
e|--8-8-8--------------------|
B|--------9~-----------------|
G|---------------------------|
D|---------------------------|
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

The other minor correction is at the end when they play this part:
e|-------------------------------|
B|--------7--6-------------------|
G|--3-----x--x-------------------|
D|--4-----4--3-------------------|
A|--4----------------------------|
E|--2----------------------------|
