This is for a friend of mine
and the other 7 people who asked me for it.
Intro
E|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|-2-2-4b-4b-4b-rb~--2-2-4b-4b-rb-2~-|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|x2

Now the F#m chord can be played as F#5 if you have a keyboard player play the F#m (like 
track), but, if you're jamming to the record by yourself you'll have to play it like this:
E|-2-|
B|-2-|
G|-2-|
D|-4-|
A|-4-|
E|-2-|
  F#m
The other chords are shuffled and are best played with the root and fifth, eg:
E|----------|
B|----------|
G|----------|
D|-------7--|
A|-7--2--5--|
E|-5--0-----|
   A  E  D

This is the way THE VERSE goes...

D                  E
Living isn't easy, feeling bright and breezy
F#m
Everybody has to try
D                    E                     A
Seeing is believing, never show the reason why
D                    E                       F#m
Even when we grow up and our bodies slow up, no, no, no
   D               E                 A
We think again but do we understand?


This is the way THE CHORUS goes...

                  E                  A
That's the way it goes, oh everybody knows
                  E                     A
That you can't survive if you ain't got drive
             D                    A
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
             D                                  E
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
                   A
But you must carry on


This is the way THE BRIDGE goes...

F#m
I haven't told any secrets
  A
I swore not to tell any lies
F#m
Something inside me is saying
D                       E
That's the way it goes, that's the way it goes

For the bridge you will find this riff helpfull:
Use loads of overdrive and distortion...
E|---12-9-|
B|--------|
G|-9------|
D|--------|
A|--------|
E|--------|

I like to call this the middle section
(even though it isn't)

             D                    A
Those velvet wings can't help you fly
             D                                  E
Those velvet wings won't always help you to get by
                   A
But you must carry on

Now the solo, I think, goes like this:
E|-12-12-12\10-10-10-10\9--9--9--------------------------------------------|
B|-14-14-14\12-12-12-12\10-10-10-10---10---10---------------------------10-|
G|-------------------------------9h11-9h11-9h11-9---------------------9----|
D|------------------------------------------------11-9-------9b-11-11------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------12-12---------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|-14-14-14/15-15-15-15\14-14-14-14/15-15-15-15\14-14-14-12-12-12-|
B|-15-15-15/17-17-17-17\15-15-15-15/17-17-17-17\15-15-15-14-14-14-|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

E|-10-10-10-10-9--9-------------------|
B|-12-12-12-12-10-10-10---------------|
G|----------------------9h11p9--------|
D|-----------------------------11-----|
A|--------------------------------12~-|
E|------------------------------------|

This is 100% correct.
