Alright, i couldn't find any Good tabs for this, i know this is spot on. I Figured it
out by playing along to the "One Cold Night" Performance and watching how they play it,
The Tuning is Half Step Down with the D# Dropped. so it's C# G# D# F# A# D# Go to 
www.Get-Tuned.com if you don't have a Tuner that Allows you to Tune to that, i go there for 
all my
Tunings it's a Great site.
I'm Tabbing the whole song and the Lead parts as well. PLEASE NOTE this is not the way
it is played on the Actual Album this is Strictly Meant to Match up with the "One Cold
Night" Performance.

KEY:
/ = Slide
H = Hammer on
P = Pull off
X = Choke

And the End of the song, When Shawn Repeats "Now i'm Afraid, of this, now i'm so Afraid"
This is a Cool thing i discovered when your not singing and just jamming along to the song
PLay the Chorus Riff, and when you get to the G(3) the last chord, switch between the
5th and 4th fret, i'll show you what i mean in tab and i'll include the Words to do it
over too

D#|-------------|
A#|-------------|
F#|-4--5--4--5--|
D#|-3--3--3--3--|
G#|-3--3--3--3--|
C#|-3--3--3--3--|
    I am so  A

Play it the way you did before the way i tabbed it out, just on those Words  do it,
you'll get what i'm saying once you play threw the song. Well Enjoy! Fantastic Song and a
Blast to Play.
