Okay so I gave this a listen the other day and loads of people requested the tab and 
chords. I couldn't find any lyrics so I also had to try and work them out any corrections 
are appreciated!

There are various hammer ons in the song most of which I will cover but the song is 
fairly straight forward listen and play along to the song to get the right timing you should 
pick it up quite easily.

The chords you will need to know are C major, G major, E minor A minor,        F major

I don't know the intro but the part before he plays C is

 Fig 1

E---------------------|
B---------------------|
G---------------------|
D---------------------|
A-----------0-----2---|
E-----3---------------|

then you play C and he hammers the 2nd fret D string and then plays the open G like this:

E--------0--------------|
B--------1--------------|
G--------0---------0----|
D--------2---0h2--------|
A----3---3--------------|
E--------x--------------|

Then the song essentially goes like this:


Fig1         C
Them purple shadows fall across

          Em
And they soften everything they touch

          F          G        Am     G
And they give me-e a place to hide

Fig1    C
And the moonlight all around

                Em
Surely going to wash these troubles down

    F              G               Am     G
And cool the awful burning-ness of love

                F
Talkin bout the burning-ness

         G                    Am
Yeah the burning-ness, oh the burning-ness

         F
Yeah the burning-ness

                            G               C       G
We will cool down the awful burning-ness of love


Then it's just the same for the rest of the song apart from the very last part where he 
swaps the C for an E minor then goes back to how it's played in the rest like this:

                            G               Em   F
We will cool down the awful burning-ness of love ooooh ooooh

                            G               C       G
We will cool down the awful burning-ness of love

Here are the rest of the lyrics:

I hear your echo on the run
And them tears will start to come
They will dry me u-up and I’ll simply blow away

But while I’m blowin in the wind
Surely gonna feel again your soft skin
And remember-er the awful burning-ness of love
Talkin bout the burning-ness
Yeah the burning-ness, oh the burning-ness
Yeah the burning-ness
We will cool down the awful burning-ness of love

And the moonlight all around
Surely going to wash these troubles down
And cool the awful burning-ness of love
Talkin bout the burning-ness
Yeah the burning-ness, oh the burning-ness
Yeah the burning-ness
We will cool down the awful burning-ness of love

Enjoy!
