Verse 2
-------------
Live, guitar 2 now plays what guitar 1 played in the first verse. Guitar 1
plays something new:
e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------12~----------|
G|----------------------------------------------------12~---|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------15--14---14--12---12--14-10-----------------|
E|-12--14--15-----------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------12~-----------|
G|---------------------------------------12~----| x3
D|----------------------------------------------|
A|-15--14---14--12---12--14-10------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

-------------
Bridge (Hey Jo, sorry I hurt you...)
-------------

Guitar 1:
     Hey Jo sorry I hurt you, but     they say love is a virtue don't they?
e|-8--------7----------------------10----------8-----------------------------|
B|-8--------8----------------------10----------8-----------------------------|
G|-9--------9----------------------11----------9-----------------------------|
D|-10-------9----------------------12----------10----------------------------|
A|-10-------7----------------------12----------10----------------------------|
E|-8-------------------------------10----------8-----------------------------|

Guitar 2 still plays verse 2.

-------------
Chorus 2
-------------
Guitar 1 plays some slide guitar:
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-7///9----10~-[I think this 10th fret is only added live]---------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 plays this again:
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-8--8--8---8---0-0-0--0--1-1-1--1--1--1---1--1--1---1--1--1---1---|
G|-x--x--x---x---0-0-0--0--0-0-0--0--0--0---0--0--0---0--0--0---0---|
D|-9--9--9---9---2-2-2--2--2-2-2--2--2--2---2--2--2---2--2--2---2---|
A|-10-10-10--10--2-2-2--2--3-3-3--3--3--3---3--3--3---3--3--3---3---|
E|-10-10-10--10--0-0-0--0--3-3-3--3--3--3---3--3--3---3--3--3---3---|

-------------
Outro (I see you rushing now, ...)
-------------

Guitar 1 was a bit hard to follow for me, I guess this:
      'I see you rushing now, tell me how to reach you'   End song with:
e|-------------------------------------------------------|-------|
B|-12----15---------13-----------13--------13------------|--13~--|
G|-12----12---------12-----12--------12--------12--------|--12~--|
D|-12----14------14-----14----14--------14--------14-----|--14~--|
A|-------------------------------------------------------|-------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------|-------|

Guitar 2 (It's strummed multiple times, but tabbed it this way to match it
          with the lyric)
      'I see you rushing now, tell me how to reach you'
e|-------7-----------------------------------------------|-------|
B|-12----8-------1---------------------------------------|--1~---|
G|-12----9-------0---------------------------------------|--0~---|
D|-12----9-------2---------------------------------------|--2~---|
A|---------------3---------------------------------------|--3~---|
E|---------------3---------------------------------------|--3~---|
