Tom Petty's cover of Thunderclap Newman's "something in the air". I learned this
song a couple months ago and by listening to the album I know it is about 100% correct.
Great song and easy.  Enjoy

Standard tuning  EADGBe


  The song uses basic chords
     D    Em    F#m     E      G    
  A     B
e|---2----0------2------0------3----0-----2----|

D|---0----2------4------2------0----2-----4----|

E|--------0------2------0------3---------------|


[Verse]
D
D
Call out the instigator
                         Em
Because there's something in the air
                        D
We've got to get together sooner or later
                       Em
Because the revolution's here

  And you know it's right
  Fill A- play this twice. this little piece can be a little bit tricky but it sounds good

[Verse]

Run through the fields and houses
                          Em
Because there's something in the air
                        D
We've got to get together sooner or later
                     Em
Because the revolution's here

And you know it's right
Fill A 2x
And you know that it's right


[Chorus]
Em
We have got to get it together
                                  D

it looks long and confusing but its really simple.  Here's the layout out the interlude/solo

Figure 2 2x
Figure 1 2x
Figure 2 2x
Figure 3 2x
Figure 4 2x
Ends with G  A  B

Call out the instigator
                         F#m
Because there's something in the air

                       E
We've got to get together sooner or later
                        F#m
Because the revolution's here
                       E fill B
And you know it's right

Again it changes key so it changes the fill but its easy now

  Fill B play twice

We have got to get it together now

The interlude part is actually really easy to play if you set up your fingers right. Use your third finger on your second string, then your first finger on the third string. This leaves your second finger to push the two frets on the fifth string.
