About this tab version
First version I've seen on the internet. Was this info helpful? Yes No
I tabbed this as best I could simply by watching him play it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlOuP-36Fyg

The same chords are used throughout the song but during the verses and prechorus they are played as shown in 
the tab and during the chorus they are strummed. I specifically note when it should be played strummed.
Watch the video for the rhythm of the tab and strumming.

Note that when strumming the patterns you should do some hammer-ons. Specifically, hammer on the D string on 
the Cadd9 chord.
Also note that he doesn't play G/F# when strumming and instead plays it as Dsus/F# every time (I think). 


Chords:

Em7:       022033
Cadd9:     032033 (note, I normally see this as x32033, but it doesn't look like he mutes the E)
Dsus/F#:   200233
G:         320033
G/F#:      200033

[Verse] 

(once as an intro, then continue playing it throughout)

Em7  Cadd9  Dsus/F#  G  G/F#  
Em7  Cadd9  Dsus/F#  G

Em7        Cadd9
Maybe next year
         Dsus/F#       G        G/F#
You will sing for me a mountain
       Em7             Cadd9
With a voice that is a window
       Dsus/F#      G
To the river deep inside

Em7        Cadd9
Maybe next year
         Dsus/F#      G    G/F#
You will love me as a hero
    Em7         Cadd9
And I will fly across
       Dsus/F#     G
Our geographical divide

Em7  Cadd9  Dsus/F#  G  G/F#  
Em7  Cadd9  Dsus/F#  G


[Pre-Chorus]

      Em7   Cadd9    Dsus/F# G  
Cause Time, time is a fickle friend
  Em7                Cadd9
A friend we took for granted
       Dsus/F#         G
In the twilight of our hour
    Em7 Cadd9      Dsus/F# G
And all things come to an  end
    Em7        Cadd9       Dsus/F# G
And maybe next year, maybe next    year


[Strum]

          Em7               Cadd9
Cause you said you'd always love me
        Dsus/F#       G    Dsus/F#
And you said we'd be okay
     Em7             Cadd9
So I took the job in California
  Dsus/F#        G
A thousand miles away
  Em7            Cadd9
Regret is such a bastard
            Dsus/F#         G
And there's nothing you can do
    Em7        Cadd9          Dsus/F# G
And maybe next year I'll come home to you
Em7        Cadd9              Dsus/F# G
                    I'll come home to you


[Strum one more round of the chords with Dsus/F# replacing the G/F# then return to picking with a mute first]

Em7 Cadd9 Dsus/F# G Dsus/F#
Em7 Cadd9 Dsus/F# G

[Verse 2]

Em7          Cadd9
  I remember you and me
     Dsus/F#  G    
Lying side by side
Em7  Cadd9   Dsus/F#   G
     Staring wide-eyed at the sky
Em7     Cadd9
  I can see the moment
         Dsus/F#        G
That you took me by the hand
Em7                Cadd9
   Smiled at me and said
      Dsus/F#          G
Let's never leave this land


[Strum]

      Em7   Cadd9    Dsus/F# G     Dsus/F#
Cause Time, time is a fickle friend
  Em7                Cadd9

And all things come to an  end
