Chords aren't 100% accurate but decent enough. Enjoy!

In the outro "in the light" section, the kind of funky chord that's tacked onto the end of some of the lines is a C7. Just pulls from that last C in the line into the C7, and only a few times. But it adds a lot of subtlety to the song.

Great tab! I only have two minor comments:

1) The Bm in the bridge sounds more to me like a B7 (021202).
2) There are a few funky chord changes between sections that really give the song character. I'm currently stumped on trying to figure them out; anyone have any suggestions?

A bunch of the A chords sound more like A7 chords to me (x02020)
The Bm is a B7 (x24242)
The outro 'in the light' has weird chord changes, its a slow 3 strum on A7 then the C only adds the C7 on the last strum of the chord before the change, except when followed after the A7 when it gets three strums:

G Em D (C C C7) G Em D
In the light, right here in the light
(C C C7) G Em D C A7 (C C C7 C7 C7)
Right here in the -- hold me and don't you ever let this die

The strum pattern for this section is also a slap pattern, where between every DU there is a rest where the strings are slapped. it goes:
DU S UU S UU S UUDUDU S UU S UU S UUDUDU S UU S UU S UUDUDD S D D DDDU

It's confusing. here's a youtube video that explains it better:
