Tuning: Standard
Capo: 9

This is how I like to play the song when I play it acoustically. 
Since no one tagged the chords to the lyrics, or any site I could 
find had accurate lyrics, I typed them up and added the chords. 
I hope it helps.

When I play it, I like to finger pick just the 2nd, 4th, and 5th strings,
and strike the strings for the mute and sound it makes. 
You play Am for an extra count so it would look like this.

On the second Bridge I change the finger picking to an arpeggiated pattern with the same fingers, playing up and down the 2nd, 4th, and 5th strings rapidly like this.

The song is originally played without a capo in F#m, and though I tabbed it for the 9th Capo, I'll include the chords without a capo, and with the capo on 2. (Without Capo)
