This song is normally played in D-Standard tuning, however this tab will show 
chord voicings that are in standard tuning with a capo on the 1st fret. Basically, 
treat the song as if you were playing in Db minor/E Major, and it's simple 
manipulation of chords in in those keys. Hope it helps!

Capo 1st fret

~: Let chord/note ring
x: Mute string
(*): Lyrics

The overall rhythm of this song is sort of described as |x--X--x-x---x--X--x-x---...|
where there's a lot of emphasis on the "X" rather than the "x". I will show the 
tab exactly first, then at the end of each section I will put the tabs for the 
chords if that's easier to follow.
