This ain't right, the tuning is Drop C#, and the chords for the intro are these:

eb|-----------------------|
Bb|-----------------------|
Gb|17-16--12-11--17-16-19-|
Db|-x--x---x-x----x--x--x-|
Ab|15-14--10-9---15-14-17-|
Db|-----------------------|


There's a certain strum pattern I use, I just don't feel like tabbing it out.
