The picking is fairly random and you can pick up the general idea just by listening to the song. Something like this works for the verse:
e------------------|-----------------|B--------0---------|-----------------|G----9-------9-----|-------5-------6-|D------9---9-----9-|---6-------7-----|A--------------7---|-----------------|E--0---------------|-4---4---5---5---|
And the chorus is like this:
e------------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|B--------0---------|-------0---------|-------0---------|-------0---------|G----6-------6-----|---8-------8-----|---9-------9-----|---6-------6-----|D------7---7-----7-|-----9---9-----7-|-----9---9-----9-|-----6---6-----6-|A--------------7---|-------------7---|-7-----------7---|-4-----------4---|E--5---------------|-7---------------|-----------------|-----------------|
