I wanted to learn this song to play acoustically, but the tabs already on here didn't
seem right. So I made this one, it's sort of an amalgamation of different people's
rendition of the song, with the song itself, put in a way I think sounds nice when 
played on an acoustic.

The intro I tabbed out isn't completely accurate as to how many strums of each chord to
do, so just try it out and do whatever sounds good to yourself.

In the verse, I'll put a '*' next to the Am chords, which you play briefly for a strum
or two.

Intro: (C-D x3)

The intro is then played again and the above chords are repeated for the rest of the song.
