(This tab is entirely correct) 
(I fixed the solo lyrics and chord progression B -> Bm essentially)

Enjoy!

(HOLD last A) 
(bottles clashing) 
(play A with first finger and use the middle finger to play 2nd string third fret hammering) (voice overs) 
("Go find him..."...“How’s it going dude”, “Hey man whatsup”, “Tell Ty he can turn the radio back on”)
