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?
