I've tabbed this song because although there are loads of tabs for it
already, no-one seems to have got it right.

A couple of people have got the tuning right - it's definitely
Open C# on the recording, low to high (C# / G# / C# / F / G# / C#).
This is the more common Open D tuning they use on a lot of their songs,
but another half step down. Someone has tabbed the song in Open C6 too,
which I've noticed myself is now how they play it live - however this
tuning is truer to the recording, plus I think it sounds better anyway.

The chord shapes in the intro (x2) are

-0------0------0---0---0---0------|
-5------0------0---0---0---0------|
-0------3------0---5---0---7------|
-4------0------0---0---0---0------|
-2------4------0---x---0---x------|
-x------x------0---5---0---7------|

The verse chords simply are

C# - 000000
F# - 5x0500
C# - 000000
G# - 7x0700

Then it's back to the intro chords for the "I'll kneel down..." part

Then the quiet "I Will Wait" bit, I think is as below

"I will wait, I will wait, for you..."

-0-------------------------------0--------------0--|
-0-------------------------------0--------------0--|
-0-------------------------------0--------------0--|
-0-------------------------------4--------------7--|
-0-------------------------------4--------------7--|
-0-------------------------------4--------------7--|

These last couple of chords I'm unsure about, the banjo and other
instruments make it hard to work out in the later louder parts; you
could also play the 7th fret chord (7x0770), but it comes down to
preference really.

The only other section to note is near the end, when it goes
"Raise my hands..." the chords are more like this

-0------0------0----------0---0---0------|
-0------0------0----------0---0---0------|
-12-----10-----8----------5---3---7------|
-0------0------0----------0---0---0------|
-x------x------x----------x---x---x------|
-12-----11-----9----------5---4---7------|

That's pretty much it!
