This song is beautiful! I was pretty much disappointed with all the tabs online-its 
not EMajor! So I decided to do it myself. woohoo!
Questions go to florflow@gmail.com

So the song is in Eb major. tune strings 1, 5, and 6 to Eb.
Tune strings 3 and 4 to Gb.
Tune string 2 to Bb.

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE:
Eb|
Bb|
Gb|
Gb|
Eb|
Eb|

The only strings that will ever move frets are strings 3 and 4. Strum the other strings 
throughout the song!! If i use a ZERO (0), It means to strum open also. A slash (/) 
a subtle slide!

Thanks for the tab. FYI, you can drop the low Eb (1/2 step? whole step? Don't have my guitar right now!). That will allow you to work the bass parts in. Also, on the 2nd part of the chorus, try adding 2nd fret to the Bb (in addition to the 2 Gb's on 3), it sounds nice.
