The other tabs were either incomplete or had errors, so I decided to submit a 
correct one. This is the version from "American IV: The Man Comes Around".

(G* is a standard G chord with the high e string muted. It's only used a 
few times. He doesn't actually play a chord in the recording, but this mimics 
the piano accompaniment better than a full G.

C/G can be substituted with a regular C chord, but I think the full chord 
sounds better. 

Note how Johnny plays his Gs - the third finger is on the third fret of the 
B string. 

You can drop the sustain chords and just play the normal chords and it 
still sounds good.)

If the Bm is played 244344, wouldn't that make it a B? Did you mean x24432?
