Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)
Here's a kick at the can, cause none of the chords worked for me on this site so far,
this song anyway. I once doubled rhythym guitar when a band was covering this, I made it
pretty much, but it sounds alright if you play it along with The Essential B.O.C. Album. 
is my first tab so bear with me.

Intro : Rhythym fill...
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---2-0----0----0----0---2-0----0----0------------------------------------|
D|--2------0----0----0---2------0----0-------------------------------------|
A|-0------2----3----2---0------2----3--------------------------------------|
E|-------3----1----3----------3----1---------------------------------------|
That's the main rhythym. It took me a while to figure out, not sure about the 1 3 0 0,
last 0 might be something else, but you can change that how you like. That's the little
bit. Once the drum fill comes in, hit a 'G' chord, something like.. 355433, from Bottom 
up.
Then the structure looks like this:

Am   G   F   G  Am   G   
  G

It's really simple from then on in. You can double the rhythym line too, but if you're 
along, it's kinda tough to keep the thing going right.

(OK Kids, Here's the hard part. Wicked-ass solo, Tabbed in some other section. The
background chords, are something like this when they're in)

F - G - Cm (?) - G - F - G - Cm (?) - G
(I cant find anything better than that C minor, when you've got the full distortion on,
sounds fine, but if you get a chord thats better, Please Email)

Then it fades... and you get your Rhythym Fill again..

Am  G  F  G

Am  G   F      G   Am  G  
 G
Love of two is one
Am  G    F   G       Am  G

F             G        Am      G (Start doing all upstrokes until 'Come on')
Came the last night of sadness
(G)        F              G           Am     G
And it was clear that she couldn't go on
(G)      F        G           Am             G
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
(G) F       G            Am          G
The candles blew out and disappeared
(G) F        G             Am                  
       F
The curtains flew and then he appeared (saying don't be afraid)
G       Am            G      F
Come on baby (and she had no fear)
(F)  G         Am        G                     F
       And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
(F)         G             Am            G            
      F
They looked backwards and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
(F)     G         Am            G              F
She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
G       Am          G        F        G
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)

Am  G  F  G  Am  G  F  G

I love that bass riff at the end.
Now, I don't know if the stupid chord things will work here on ultimate-guitar (Where
tab shall stay, if seen elsewhere, email talek_cornish@hotmail.com) Where you hover you
and the chords appear.. so heres what I used..

    Am      G          F      Am7     Cm (?)
e|--0-------3---3------1-------3-------3-----------------------------------|
B|--2-------3---3(0)---1-------2-------4-----------------------------------|
G|--2-------4-O-0------2-------2-------5-----------------------------------|
D|--2-------5-R-0------3-------2-------5-----------------------------------|
A|--0-------5---2------3-------0-------3-----------------------------------|
E|--x-------3---3------1-------x-------x-----------------------------------|

If anyone can find an error in the tabs or lyrics here, or if you see this tab on a site
