Note - This tab is a mixture of accoustic, electric and banjo guitars,
       with piano aswell. The riff can be figured out by listening
       to the song.
     - Some chords are better bar-chored at times depending on how
       you're playing the song.
     - The roman numerals above/under a chord represent when a certain
       lick should be played.
     - Some licks are actually piano licks.
     - Minor licks have been omitted to encourage improvisation.

Verse
Asus2
 I spent the morning at an old friend's grave
                                     E       Bsus2
Flowers and Amazing Grace, he was a good man
Asus2
  He spent his whole life spinnin' his wheels

Never knowin' how the real thing feels
  E                                Bsus2        Bsus
He never took a chance or took the time to dance
       Abm          Asus2        Bsus2       Bsus
And I stood there thinking as I said goodbye
Abm             Asus2            Bsus
  Today is the first day of the rest of my life


Chorus
           F#m                   E
I'm gonna stop lookin' back and start movin' on
     Asus2
And learn how to face my fears
          F#m               E
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
   Bsus
I wanna leave something here                                     ii)
   C#m                  Bsus                     Asus2           F#sus4
Go out on a ledge, with out any net, That's what I'm gonna be about
                 Asus2             Bsus
Yeah I wanna be runnin', When the sand runs out

      iv)
Play: E~ - E~ Bsus2~ - Asus2~


Asus2
 'Cause people do it everyday,

Promise themselves they're gonna change,
      E        Bsus2  Asus2
I've been there,   iii) but I'm changin' from the inside out

That was then and this is now
       E                    Bsus2 (or Bsus)  v)
I'm a new man, yeah, I'm a brand new man
Abm               Asus2                  Bsus2
  And when they carve my stone they'll write these words
Abm                 Asus2              Bsus
  "Here lies a man who lived life for all that its worth"

Play Chorus then E

Bridge
          Bsus2
And as a cold wind blows across the grave yard
   Asus2     vi)    Bsus2                         F#sus4 Abm Asus2~
I think I hear the voice of my old friend whisper in     my  ear

           F#m~                  E~
I'm gonna stop lookin' back and start movin' on
     Asus2~                   A Abm
And Learn how to face my fears
          F#m               E
Love with all of my heart, make my mark
   Bsus
I wanna leave something here                                     ii)
   C#m                  Bsus                     Asus2           F#sus4
Go out on a ledge, with out any net, That's what I'm gonna be about

Overall, it looks like an accurate lift. What you call an Abm chord (technically, in this case it should be labelled a G#m) I think is actually an E/G#. I'm also pretty sure that there are some minor problems with the Intro chord progression; it should be more like:

F#m - E - Bsus4 - Asus2 (or Aadd9), then repeat

Still, these are nitpicks. Good work, and thanks for the post!
