I figured out the little bridge he plays after the chorus. I'm 99% sure its right. It 
needs practice to get it down perfectly (and the right effects).
I give the first half credit to dr.doctor who figured out everything before the little 
I just pasted it into my tab to make it fuller.

Here's the youtube video I refer to later on. Watch this about a billion times and you 
figure it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpiGsMkQd2c

Verse 1:
No fame, all there is, all there was on the second lady
Can't take a cent, take a cut of that kind of ran
I'll stand kind of pushed, kind of bent, on that heavy land
I'll stand for the sake of my friends. I will see him there

Verse 2:
The same, not begin, not give up, in a better way
Again, wash the stain off his bed not to split them off
I'll stand for the sake of my friends, I will see him there
Well I will see him there

Just repeat chorus I and II and changing bits here and there for the second time.
It’s easy to figure out because it’s the same chords like the Em chord plays in between 
break and then the whole thing starts over again.

The end!
