Those are the chords i use and i also thought that you would like to know that George Harrison Played a Sitar for this song but the guitar that John Lennon does the intro for the song and it is tabbed below.

D add5        D           D                 D

After the intro comes the words and chords

[D]I once had a girl or should I say[C]she once[G] had[D] me
[D]She showed me her room isn't it good [C]Norwe[G]gian [D]Wood
[DM]She asked me to stay and she told me to sit any[G]where
[DM]So I looked around and i noticed there wasn't a [EM]chair   A
[D]I sat on the rug biding my time [C]drinking [G]her [D]wine
[D]We talked until two and then she said [C]its time [G]for [D]bed


[DM]She told me she worked in the morning and started to [G]laugh
[DM]I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the [EM]bath    A
[D]And when I awoke I was alone, [C]this bird [G]has [D]flown
[D]So I lit a fire isn't it good [C]Norwe[G]gian [D]Wood

Good Tab, but actually George Harrsion didn't know how to play the sitar when Norwegian Wood was made, so he didn't play it on the song. George learned how to play the sitar in about 1967...But Geroge had an Indian friend, who played the sitar on this song...All this is explained in The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions book. :)
