Thanks to:
Type7 for helping to fix the verse.
tennessee90 for tabbing out the chorus.

Tuning: Standard

[Intro] starts with chords like this:

e|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4------------------------------------------------|
B|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4------------------------------------------------|
G|---5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5------------------------------------------------|
D|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6------------------------------------------------|
A|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6------------------------------------------------|
E|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4------------------------------------------------|

Then it goes into the lead part. The intro lead goes like this:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---7-9-7-9-7-------7h9-7------------7------------------------------------|
G|-------------8-8---------8\6-4--6/8---6--8-9-8-6-5-6/8-------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------9-12-9--7-9------9-------7/9--------------------------------|
G|-------4-6/8--------------6/8---8\6-4------------------------------------|
D|---4-6-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Here is the [Verse], which is also just the chords played behind the intro riff:
e|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-6-6-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-2-2--2-2-2--2--------------|
B|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-6-6-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-2-2--2-2-2--2--------------|
G|---5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-6-6-8-8-8--8-8-8--8-2-2--2-2-2--2--------------|
D|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-8-8-9-9-9--9-9-9--9-4-4--4-4-4--4--------------|
A|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-8-8-9-9-9--9-9-9--9-4-4--4-4-4--4--------------|
E|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-6-6-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-2-2--2-2-2--2--------------|

e|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-2-2-0-0-0--0-0-0--0-4-4--4-4-4--4--------------|
B|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-2-2-0-0-0--0-0-0--0-6-6--6-6-6--6--------------|
G|---5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-2-2-1-1-1--1-1-1--1-6-6--6-6-6--6--------------|
D|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-4-4-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-6-6--6-6-6--6--------------|
A|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-4-4-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-4-4--4-4-4--4--------------|
E|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4-2-2-0-0-0--0-0-0--0----------------------------|

e|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4------------------------------------------------|
B|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4------------------------------------------------|
G|---5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5------------------------------------------------|
D|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6------------------------------------------------|
A|---6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6------------------------------------------------|
E|---4-4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4------------------------------------------------|


It does that whole thing twice, then hits the [Pre-chorus] part:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------6-6-6-----------------------------6-6-6------------|
D|---9-9-9-9--11-9------6-6-6--6-6-6---9-9-9-9--11-9------6-6-6--6-6-6-----|
A|---6-7-6-7--9--7------4-4-4--6-6-6---6-7-6-7--9--7------4-4-4--6-6-6-----|
E|-----------------------------4-4-4-----------------------------4-4-4-----|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---9-9--9-9-9-11-11111111-13-13-13-13-13-13-13--13-13-13-----------------|
D|---9-9--9-9-9-11-11111111-13-13-13-13-13-13-13--13-13-13-----------------|
A|---7-7--7-7-7-9--9-9-9-9--11-11-11-11-11-11-11--11-11-11-----------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Then it gets to the [Chorus], which goes:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6---------------------------------9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
D|---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
A|---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---|
E|-------------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-----------------------|


Then back to the [Intro]
e|---4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4--------------------------------------------------|
B|---4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4--------------------------------------------------|
G|---5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5--------------------------------------------------|
D|---6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6--------------------------------------------------|
A|---6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6--------------------------------------------------|
E|---4--4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4--------------------------------------------------|

The lead part is mostly the same, but changes a little. Use the same chords as you did
in the intro to play behind this part:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---7-9-7-9-7-------7h9-7------------7------------------------------------|
G|-------------8-8---------8\6-4--6/8---6--8-9-8-6-5-6/8-------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------/9-7-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|---/9-8--------/6-4---/8-6--6\5~\----------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After this part is played, it goes into a [Verse], the same as the first, and continues on
the same path as it did during the first part of the song. After the {Chorus], it goes
back to the second part of the [Pre-chorus] and then does the [Chorus] again, repeating that 
twice. Then it goes to this little [Interlude] part:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---9-9-9-7-5--7-7-7-5-4----9-9-9-7-5--7-7-7-5-4--------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After this, it goes back to the [Chorus] part and the song ends.

Thanks a lot for the tab! I'm not really sure how to add a tab correction. Second line of chorus after it drops to an E it I think should go up to a C# instead of a B.

I'm having trouble getting the chorus to sound right. Is it definitely

Then it gets to the chorus, which goes:
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8---------------------------------9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
D|---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---|
A|---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---|
E|-------------------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-----------------------|

Or am I just playing it wrong? It seems simple enough but just doesn't sound right?
