The Panics - One Too Many Itches tab

This is a sublimely beautiful song by one of Australia's finest bands going around. It's 
opening track on The Panics' last album Sleeps Like a Curse. Although it's not a 
song I thought I'd try and come up with a tab in any case and this sounds pretty good on an acoustic.

If you want to play this song as it sounds on cd then you'll need to work out the 
patterns of the chords, or you can just strum along like I do.
