Notes:
The chords are placed (hopefully) exactly over the lyrics where they appear, giving a 
better indication of when they come in than if I were to judge the time in distance apart.
The other tab for this song was sorely lacking, especially in the bit at the end where 
the chords go all over the place, so I've added (almost all of) what was missing and 
written the tab out in full.

You can distribute this tab however and to whomever you want, but do give me some 
credit, this took me bloody ages to figure out! :)

The only funny tab symbol I used is '/', indicating a slide up (in this case the whole 
barre chord slides up). All chords

are standard A and E shape barre chords, EADGBe tuning, so no need for big chord 
diagrams. The only 'solo' in this song is at 1:39 to 1:54, and I haven't worked it out, it 
seems simple enough though.
The GCGCGC bits are done on acoustic guitar, with an upstroke on the offbeat, but I play 
it as '5' chords double time, all downstrokes, which I find works nicely.
