I got hooked on Jukebox the Ghost and I felt compelled to learn this song.
But there weren't any tabs anywhere on the net so I just transcribed it myself by ear
and with a little help from Youtube videos.
Enjoy. Many thanks to crmrz for tabbing out the Solo lick thing.

Prechorus x2

Piano Melody

Outro (Guitar plays F staccato 4 times while the piano does its thing.
I guess you could play the piano part but the last lot of notes are too low for a 6 string.
A 7 string might be able to do the trick, I'm not sure. It's just a descent of the 
Minor scale in D.
It's something like this):
e|---13-12-10----------------------------------------------|
B|------------13-11-10-------------------------------------|
G|---------------------12-10-9-----------------------------|
D|-----------------------------12-10-----------------------|
A|-----------------------------------13-12-10--------------|
E|--------------------------------------------13-12-10-----|

Except with a lot more low notes after that last D.

That's it. Have fun!

The scale for the piano outro should be Melodic Minor in D, the word "melodic" got left out for some reason.
