It's a great song to play but it's not easy to get the right timing for the first part of the verse.
The timing should make sense (and will certainly help) but may not be perfect.

[Intro]
G|----------------|
D|----------------|   3 times, then
A|0-h25---p0-h7---|
E|----------------|

G|-79---7---9-7-----|
D|--------9---------|
A|----------------5-|
E|--------------7---|

[Verse]
  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
G|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
D|----------------|---------------5|----------------|----------------|
A|7---x-7---x---5-|7---x-7-x--75-5-|7---x-7---x---5-|7---x-7-x--75---|
E|------------7---|-------------7--|------------7---|-------------753|

The same thing as above but the last note is different.

  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

E|------------7---|-------------7--|------------7---|-------------750|

  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
G|----------------|----9-9-7-------|
D|----------------|--9-------9-7---|   3 times, then
A|--------0-----0-|7---------------|
E|3-----3---------|--------------0-|

  1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|--------0-----0-|
E|3-----3---------|

This tab is pretty close to correct. There are a few minor improvisational stuff that I have seen added. I think this tab just gives you the basic and leaves out the improvisational stuff. A few notes here and there are different tho depending on who is playing the song. The first version of this song on this site is wrong (not sure about other versions), so use this version to get you going if your gonna play this song. Remember this is for a bit more advanced players. I mean it really isn't too hard to play. Most of the song is just memorizing the sections you play. Memorizing the many sections is the hard part for me. But if you keep doing it you'll get it.
