I dont know what's going on with this song and the other tabs for it on this site, but
here's how to play it if you wanna impress a crowd of people with just you and your acoustic...


e --3---3---3---3----|
b --3---3---3---3----|
g --0---2---0---0----|
d --2---0---2---0----|
a --2---0---3---2----|
e --0---2--(0)--3----|   strum this pattern for the intro
                       (it's actually the same as the chorus)


e --------------------|
b --------------------|
g --0---2---4---4-----|
d --2---0---5---5-----|
a --2---0---5---5-----|
e --0---2---3---3-----|  (:if you want, you can use the full G chord instead
                        of doing the last power chord. it may sound nicer,
                        but i'd suggest saving it for the chorus :)


e --3---3---3---3---|
b --3---3---3---3---|
g --0---2---0---0---|
d --2---0---2---0---|
a --2---0---3---2---|
e --0---2--(0)--3---|   play this 4 times, then, heres the good part

2nd part of chorus

e --3---3---3---3-|
b --3---3---3---3-|
g --0---2---0---0-|
d --2---0---0---0-|
a --2---0---2---2-|
e --0---2---3---3-|

(I wont be around here for too very long...)

Play verse 2 which is the same as verse 1
Then play the chorus
Then play the second part of the chorus twice (but sing it an octave higher if you can!)


e --------------------------------8-7----------------------------|
b -----8-8--10/12-10-10h12-12---8-----10--8--10/12-10--8h10-8----|
g ---------------------------------------------------------------|
d ----- This is the lead. I think it's optional to skip if you're
a ------- playing by yourself, only cuz it doesnt sound good with--|
e -----------------------------------------------------------------| out back-up.

2nd part of the bridge

Now this is the fun part. Drop that pick and start finger picking this:

e --------------------------------------------------|
b ------------------------------------------1--0----|
g ---0--------4--2---------4---4------------------2-|
d ------2-----------0--------------0----------------|
a ------------------------------------2-------------|
e ---0----0------2-----2-------3---------3----------|

e --------------------------------|
b --------------------------------|
g ---0--------4--2---------0--0---|
d ------2-----------0-------------|
a --------------------------------|
e ---0----0------2-----2---3--3---|

here's a tip for making the above part easy...
-play chord pattern for the 2nd part of the chorus and finger pick that to play the 2nd 
of the bridge...but
-DO NOT use your pinky and ring finger for the b and e strings. instead, use your pinky 
hold down the 4th fret on the g string when needed.

Right before the outro, hit your acoustic with your finger nail, then 2 times with your 
to imitate Will on drums. ( i think its a good effect, lol)


e --3---3---3---3-|
b --3---3---3---3-|
g --0---2---0---0-|
d --2---0---0---0-|
a --2---0---2---2-|
e --0---2---3---3-| Repeat this till the end!

Now, that should be it.
