Riff played with the E / Asus2 chord sequence (optional ad-lib with 
this any way you like). I like to play it for the intro and in between the verses.

    E             Asus2
e|--0--------------0-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--0--------------0-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|--1--------------2-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--2------2-------2------2----------------------------------------------------|
A|--2--2/4---4p0---0--2/4----4p0-----------------------------------------------|
E|--0--------------0-----------------------------------------------------------|

Every tab on here has the wrong last chord in the chorus, it should be a Bbdim played like this:
e|--0------|
B|--2------|
G|--0------|
D|--2------|
A|--1------|
E|--x------|

[Intro]

 E  Asus2
 E  Asus2


[Verse 1]
E                           Asus2
 There's somethin' happenin' here
         E                 Asus2
 What it is ain't exactly clear
           E                     Asus2
 There's a man with a gun, over there
         E             Asus2
 Tellin' me I got to beware

 
[Chorus]             
 (I think it's time we)
 E               D
 Stop, children, what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim     
 Everybody look - what's goin' down?

 E  Asus2
 E  Asus2


[Verse 2]
E                           Asus2
 There's battle lines bein' drawn
          E                    Asus2
 Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
 E                            Asus2
  Young people speakin' their minds
         E                  Asus2
 Gettin' so much resistance from behind


[Chorus]
 (it's time we)
 E               D
 Stop, children, what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim
 Everybody look - what's goin' down?

  E  Asus2
  E  Asus2


[Verse 3]
 E                         Asus2
  What a field day for the heat
   E                      Asus2
 A thousand people in the street
         E                       Asus2
 Singin' songs and they carryin' signs
        E                    Asus2
 Mostly say,"hooray for our side"


[Chorus]
 (It s time we..)
 E               D
 Stop, hey,  what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim
 Everybody look - what's goin' down?

  E  Asus2
  E  Asus2


[Verse 4]
 E                Asus2
 Paranoia strikes deep
 E                      Asus2
 Into your life it will creep
    E                          Asus2
 It starts when you're always afraid
             E                      Asus2
 Step out of line, the man come and take you away


[Outro]
 (we better..)
 E               D
 Stop, hey, what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim
 Everybody look - what's goin.. 

 (we better..)
 E               D
 Stop, hey, what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim
 Everybody look - what's goin..

 (we better..)
 E               D
 Stop, hey, what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim
 Everybody look - what's goin..

 (we better..)
 E               D
 Stop, children, what's that sound?
 A                       Bbdim
 Everybody look - what's goin' down?

I'm a bit confused. Remarks say Edim6, then the tab shows E6. So which is it?

E6 is just abbreviated for Edim6, I'll change it .
