So I have seen chorded version of this song, and they suit just fine, but I hate 
standard tuning. So here is the Actual way to play this song in Open D, just as Marcus does in 
all the live videos.

Now the main progression goes like this (for the verses):
      Bm                    G                   D
D |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
F#|----0---0---0---0---0---5----5----5----5----0----0----0----0----0----0----|
D |--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A |--2----2----2----2--------------------------------------------------------|
D |----------------------5----5----5----5----0----0----0----0----0----0------|
         A
D  ----------------------------------------|
A  ----------------------------------------|
F# -----7----7-----------------------------|
D  ----------------------------------------|
A  ----------------------------------------|
D  ---7----7-------------------------------|

Note:
Sometimes, Marcus does a slightly different picking pattern.

He will add in the Middle D string to his plucks.
So it would change the tab to:
         Bm             G            D       A
D |-----------------------------------------------------------|
A |-----------------------------------------------------------|
F#|---------0-----------5---------0------------7--------------|
D |---------4-----------0---------0------------0--------------|
A |-------2---------------------------------------------------|
D |-------------------5---------0------------7----------------|

He does it at random points in the song to add sound, so you go with what you feel on 
where it should go.


The verses remain the same throughout.


The Chorus is almost the same, except you add a chord shape before the G to replace Bm 
on the first measure. This chord shape is below.

D |-----------|
A |-----------|
F#|-------3---|
D |-----------|         This chord shape ONLY replaces the Bm from the main
A |-----------|         progression on the FIRST measure of the chorus.
D |-----4-----|         The second measure it goes back to Bm.


The song thus far repeats until the Bridge.

The bridge is fairly simple in the live recordings, though it is different from the demo 
recordings. I have not been able to sample it from the demos, only the live show.

Bridge

D |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
F#|----7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---|
D |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A |--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D |--7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-----|

D  ------------------------------------------------------------------|
A  ------------------------------------------------------------------|
F# ---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0--|
D  ------------------------------------------------------------------|
A  ------------------------------------------------------------------|
D  -0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0----|

Get it? You do eight measures of A, eight of G, and sixteen of D.

End on an Open D chord :)

Hope it helped.
