The other versions on here are alright (especially Sherkon's, whose template 
I used, and a portion of whose tab I reused here).

But, The Civil Wars play this song in DADGAD, which gives it a very 
different flavor from standard or drop tuning.  It has a lot of cool chords,
and it's generally just a nice tuning to play around with.  The chords are 
simpler, and slightly different from standard tuning.

This song is awesome.

Questions?  Just PM me on UG, or leave a comment.

100% perfect! The only tab which is the way JPW plays it.

The only thing I see wrong is the second and third bass notes in the intro riff. They should be 2 and open, respectively, not 4 and 2.
