About this tab version
Every different part of the song is fully tabbed out. Hope it helps. Was this info helpful? Yes No
It's close enough to what Jake plays.

Capo 1st fret, tab relative to capo.

[Intro] and [Verse] go like this with the exception of the variation.

e|---------3-----0---------3-----3-|---------3-----0---------3-----3-|
B|---0---------0-----0---------0---|---0---------0-----0-------------|
G|-----0-----0---------0-----0-----|-----0-----0---------0-----0-----|
D|-5-----5---------5-----5---------|-4-----4---------4-----4-----0---|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

e|-----0---3-0---0-----0---3-0---0-|---------3---------------3-------|
B|---1---------1-----1---------0---|-----------3---3-----------3---0-|
G|-0-----0---------0-----0---------|-----0-------0-------0-------0---|
D|---------------------------------|-------4---------------4---------|
A|---------------------------------|-5-5-------------5-5-------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

This is the main pattern. Once you can play it, it's pretty easy to determine how to sing along. This part is
repeated from the beginning ("I'll wait here...") until "...down by the people if they let you breathe..."
through "...till my heart beats for..." which has a different pattern:

e|---------3-----------------------|---------------0---------0-------|
B|-----0-----0---0-----0---0-----0-|-----0---0-----------0---------0-|
G|---0---------0-----0-------0-----|---0-------0-------0-------0-----|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|-3-----3---------3-----3-----2---|-0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---|

e|---------------------------------|---------------2---------2------|
B|---------0-----0---------0-----0-|-----1---1-----------1-----1---0|
G|-----0-----0---------0-----0-----|---2-------2-------2---------2--|
D|---2---------2-----2---------2---|-0-----0-----0---0-----0--------|
A|-3-----3---------3-----3---------|--------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Then resume the first pattern. This goes on for a while, but it changes a little bit at "but I/must carry on/
always one/never broken," where you use this variation to capture the change in the studio version:

e|---------5-----3---------5-----3-|---------5-----3---------5-----3-|
B|---0---------0-----0---------0---|---0---------0-----0-------------|
G|-----0-----0---------0-----0-----|-----0-----0---------0-----0-----|
D|-5-----5---------5-----5---------|-4-----4---------4-----4-----0---|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|


e|-----0---5-----3-----0---5---- 3-|---------3---------------3-------|
B|---1---------1-----1---------1---|-----------3---3-----------3---0-|
G|-0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----|-----0-------0-------0-------0---|
D|---------------------------------|-------4---------------4---------|
A|---------------------------------|-5-5-------------5-5-------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

[Chorus]

The last different pattern comes during the chorus. Right before, it goes back to the second pattern at 
"Run to the lobby... through "where Sophie's..." but at "Down in the valley..." it transitions to:

e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----1---1----1-----3---3-----0-----0---0-----0-----1----|
G|---0-------0------0-------0-------0-------0-------0---0--|
D|-------2----2---------4-----4----------------------------|
A|-3--------------5---------------2-----2-----0---3--------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------3-----3----------3---------------------------------------3-------------------------------3-----0-|
B|-----0-----0---------0------0---0-----0-----0---------1-------0-----0---0-----1---1-----1---0---------0---|
G|---0---------------0----------------0-----0-----0---0---0---0---------0-----0-------0---------0-----0-----|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------2-----0---3-----------------------3-----3-----3-------------------|
E|-3-----3-----3---3-----3------2---0-----------------------3-----3-------------------------3-----3---------|

Then pause and resume with the main pattern. That's all there is to it.
