Goo Goo Dolls - Sympathy tab

  I AM VERY CONFUSED! It seems to ME as though the people who write tabs for these sites dont actually play them to make sure theyre right.cuz EVERY sympathy tab Ive seen is wayyy WRONG.  So I took it upon myself to write a very correct one.

Heres the scoop  In performance, Johnny plays some funky tuning with a 2nd fret capo, but that only sounds right with the other guitars behind him, not on his own. 
THIS tab will be perfect for solo play, and sounds awesome. 
Correct lyrics, too. Sheesh.
