I found this song on the internet as a video and tabbed it off the video. It helped me
watching where his fingers went, so I'm pretty sure this is as close to 100% correct as I
get. I'd never heard this song before I found it, so I don't know if it was an acoustic 
or if the original song was acoustic. Anyway, here it is.

Intro: acoustic
e-0-00-0-00-2-22-0-00-0-00-0~---2~---0~-------->
B-2-22-0-00-2-22-0-00-2-22-0~---2~---0~-------->

A-0~---2~---4~---2~---0~---2~---4~---2~-------->
E------0~---2~---0~--------0~---2~---0~--023~-->
Oh…

Good tab, couple of the lyrics are wrong, but that doesn't matter. I advise listening to the beach boys version if you haven't heard it. I just love their harmonies =D
