Breakdown/Buildup thing: (C minor is played over and over again, tempo increases after 
second bar, etc. Just listen to it :D you'll get it. There's also some bended notes here, 
are just the 6th fret on the B string (or second string) being bent.)

Cmin


Bridge (There's really only bass and electric piano here but if you want, the chords are 
the same as any of the verses.):

Cmin   A#maj

If you catch us coming

Fmin     Cmin

Up about around the bend.

Cmin      A#maj

And if we step a little

Fmin           Cmin

Higher will we find it then.

Cmin             A#maj

There's gotta be something roaming

Fmin     Cmin

up about around the bend. (ooooh ooooh)


Chorus:

Cmin                            A#maj                    |Chorus fill

                                                         |
Fmin                      Cmin

Once you crawl in, you'll never come back again.

Cmin                            A#maj

Oooooooooooooh oh oooooooooh oh ooooooooooh

Fmin                      Cmin

Once you crawl in, you'll never come back again.

The chords are right, but he plays the A#M and the Fm an octave higher than what you have here.
