[Verse 1] (w/Riff A x2)

I sat by the ocean and drank a potion baby to erase you
Face down in the Boulevard, yet I couldn`t face you

There ain`t no use in crying. It doesn`t change anything,
So baby what good does it do?
Your friends they all said that that`s, maybe, I don`t need them too.


[Pre Chorus]

I said that I`d be your one and only
Instead of a rolling one

[Verse]

There`s nowhere to run away.
Said, boy if you want love, you`ll have to go & find it with someone new.
Do you know who you really are? Are you sure it`s really you?

Lies are a funny thing.
They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you.
Time wounds all the heals. As we fade out of view.


[Chorus]

 You, me.

Good, but they definitely aren't using the full melodic chords for most of the spots you listed on-disc. Also fairly certain Jasper121's version of the chorus chords was closest to correct, after trying yours, his, and Jaytee805's. Best version of the slide guitar solos so far, but the outro jam is in the wrong octave.

Hey buddies, I managed to get the chorus right:

e|--4-4-4-4-4-4-------------4-4-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
B|--5-5-5-5-5-5-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
G|--6-6-6-6-6-6-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-1-1-1-1-1-1---|
D|--6-6-6-6-6-6-4-4-4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
A|--4-4-4-4-4-4-1-1-1-1-1-1-6-6-6-6-6-6-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
E|--------------------------4-4-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0---|


And then it goes E, F#,G#

You're welcome!

I hate to disagree with you, f.andrades.p, but take a listen:
http://youtu.be/LQTFOzWtYVY?t=3m (from 3:00 to 3:30)
Josh is playing a C8 interval, not G# for that 3rd chord.

Nice try though!
