Instead of doing a note-for-note tab I've just included
the necessary chords above. I only listed the chord progression
so listen to the song to hear how they are strummed.

Next it sounds like they overdubbed a second guitar part which just strums
a C (regular formation, not barred) while the lead guitar continues 
playing the above riff. But to play it as a single guitar part just switch 
to the C and strum around, maybe dropping the pinky on the third fret of the
D string every once and a while. 

Outro:
      C        G
|--3-3-3-3--33333333--|
|--5-5-5-5--33333333--|
|--5-5-5-5--44444444--|  play this a bunch of times
|--5-5-5-5--55555555--|
|--3-3-3-3--55555555--|
|-----------33333333--|

then the last phrase switches to
