This song deserves to be gotten right and it's so easy, i mean, if Will Ferrell 
can do it so successfully...why can't you? (with all due respect 
to Mr.Ferrell, of course)

Tuning: Standard

VERSE
    Em               A
 Palm Muted...............................repeat these two bars 
e|-----------------|-------------------|
B|-----------------|-------------------| 
G|-----------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|  x4
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-------------------|

Until 

"I'd go the whole wide world, I'd go the world wide world..."

P.M.
e|-----------------|-------------------|
B|-----------------|-------------------|
G|-----------------|-------------------|  "...Just to..."
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|

"...find her..."
e|-------------------|  .
B|-------------------|  .
G|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---| P.M.
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|  .
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|  .
E|-------------------|  .

P.M. gradually release the palm mute in the 2nd bar 
e|-----------------|-------------------|
B|-----------------|-------------------|
G|-----------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-------------------|

Then Again)  VERSE
 "...or maybe she's in the Bahamas..." 
   Em               A
 Palm Muted.............................repeat x 4 
e|-----------------|-------------------|
B|-----------------|-------------------|
G|-----------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|

A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-------------------|
 
  Em               A
 "...Because nobody's told'er about you..."

Palm Muted.........release PM 
e|-----------------|-------------------|
B|-----------------|-------------------|
G|-----------------|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---| <--accentuate last 2 
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2---|  then stop strings w/ palm
A|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|-------------------|

CHORUS
no PM (not much anyway)
(If you're singing at the same time this might be harder
but you can always just do the chords Em,Em,A with the 
same timing as the intro)

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------| x2 
D|-2--2--2-2-2---|
A|-2--2--2-2-2---|
E|-0--0--0-0-0---|

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---2--2--2-2-2-|
D|-x-2--2--2-2-2-|
A|-x-0--0--0-0-0-|
E|---------------|

e|---------------|        
G|---------------| x2 
D|-2--2--2-2-2---|
A|-2--2--2-2-2---|
E|-0--0--0-0-0---|

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

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------| x2 
D|-2--2--2-2-2---|
A|-2--2--2-2-2---|
E|-0--0--0-0-0---|

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---2--2--2-2-2-|
D|-x-2--2--2-2-2-|
A|-x-0--0--0-0-0-|
E|---------------|

Then you go back to the usual riff, 
or you can do this to snaz it up if you're on your own
e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-----------------------| x2
D|------------2------2---|
A|-2--2--2----0--/4--0---|
E|-0--0--0-/4------------|

Then you repeat the whole thing with less PM and more 'spark'!
