Dr Dog - The Ark tab

Hey guys, this is my first tab, and I had a lot of difficulty hearing some of the guitar 
in the song, so PLEASE email me and tell me what I got wrong, or if I didn't include 
parts that were played.

Also, I couldn't find one lesson or set of tabs for the main riff to this song, which is 
odd seeing as it's rather simple. Thought I'd provide something new to the internet...

Here it goes...

Lyrics:


{Riff x2}

God, he called for rain
So I built a ark, but no rain came
I was ashamed

{Riff x1}

Man, he called for war
So I built a gun and I joined the corps
But I was unsure

{Riff x1}

Love, she asked for more {Riff 3}
But what I gave only made her poor
I wasn't sure

The dove, she promised land {Riff 3}
As she laid the branch right into my hand
There was no land
