Elephant Song by The Strokes
Verse
Chorus
Outro/Solo 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Adam Harkins 

I couldn't find any abs that sounded completely right so I filled in the blanks. 
I'm Not 100% sure on this but this is how I play it. Sounds better than any other 
tabs I've looked at.

skater_guy tabbed the basic stuff but I think I've "got it all worked out" no pun intended haha

There are three parts to the song:
Verse
Chorus
Outro/Solo 

You can figure out the strumming patterns 

Please Rate :)
