I can't quite get some of the chords in the chorus. There must be some awkward
or somthing... but here's my effort for the song, anyway.

Intro:
   G       Gsus4
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----------------|
D|-----0-------0---|
A|---2---2---3---3-|
E|-3-------3-------|

Repeat that 8 times for the intro.

Verses:

Play the intro throughout the first two lines of the verse, like this:

  G      Gsus4    G    Gsus4 G    Gsus4     G   Gsus4
I opened up the paper, I was all across the page

      G      Gsus4 G   Gsus4  G    Gsus4  G   Gsus4
With another senorita, will I ever act my age?

Then, for the next line, play this...

   C       Csus4
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----0-------0---|
D|---2---2---3---3-|
A|-3-------3-------|
E|-----------------|
... 3 times, but for the last time, play:

   Dadd11
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----0-------0---|
D|---4---4---4---4-|
A|-5-------5-------|
E|-----------------|

Then for the last line(s) of the verse, go back to playing the intro thing.

For the last part of the second verse (just before the chorus), play this:

   G       G/F#
e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----------------|
D|-----0-------0---|
A|---2---2---2---2-|
E|-3-------2-------|

Chorus:
   G5      G5/F#      E5       D5
e|--------------------------------|
B|--------------------8-10br-8----|
G|---------5-------------------11-|
D|-5------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

        C5          B5 A#5
This is me, This is me

Fill:
              D
e|---------------|
B|-8-8-10br-8----|
G|------------10-|
D|---------------|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

        C5          B5 A#5
This is me, This is me
                         D5
What you get is what you see
        C5          A#5 C5
This is me, This is me

The next verse is only really half a verse, but its played the same as the first halves
any other verses. The only difference is that there's this played over the top of it by
lead guitar:

e|-7-5-------7-------------|
B|-----8-7-8-----7---8-7-8-|
G|------------(7)-(7)------|
D|-------------------------|
A|-------------------------|
E|-------------------------|

That is played through most of this verse.

Chorus again with the "lookin for somethin, laughing at nothing, dreaming of what could
part sung at the beginning.

The next verse and chorus are the same, but shifted up by two frets (one tone), so play
two frets higher. The easiest thing to do for the verse on this part is to play the 7th
on your A string where there would usually be an open D string (the same applies to the 
on D/Open G string)

Easy enough, when it comes down to it, don't you think? If this tab confuses you a bit,
PM me and I'll try and clear it up a bit.
