Bad Company (Paul Rodgers-Simon Kirke)
Key on my Anthology CD is Ebm but I imagine it is Em or Dm really. This version is in Dm 
the Em version is below.
For the verses the piano and bass play the notes a c d (Em b d e)at the start of the phrases.

Dm         Csus4 C        Dm
Company always on the run
Dm         Csus4 C        Dm
Destiny is a rising sun, oh
Dm         Csus4 C        Dm
I was born, six gun in my hand
Dm         Csus4 C        Dm
Behind a gun, I'll make my final stand

                            Dm Dm
That's why they call me
F        G                    Dm  C/D   Dm
Bad Company, but I can't deny
F        G                     Dm
Bad Company, 'til the day I die

[Dm C/D Dm etc]
('Til the day I die, 'til the day I die)

(Riffs before and after Solo)
Dm   Dm C C  F  C   Am
Dm Dm

Dm   Dm C C  F  C   Am
 F   C    Dm

Rebel souls, deserters we are called
Chose a gun, and threw away the sun
Now these towns, they all know our name
Six gun sound is our claim to fame

I can hear them say, Bad Company, and I won't deny
Bad Company, 'til the day I die
'Til the day I die
Bad Company, I can't deny
Bad Company, 'til the day I die

And I said, Bad Company, oh yeah yeah
Bad Company, 'til the day I die
'Cause I'm young and I'm free
Oh, but I'm in Bad Company

Em Version

Em  Dsus4 D  Em etc

G    A      Em  D/E   Em etc

(Riffs before and after Solo)
Em   Em D D  G  D   Bm
Em Em

Em   Em D D   G  D   Bm
 G   D    Em

Great tab mate. Both work great although obviously you'd capo the first at fret 1
