This is a great song but i couldn't find any tabs for this so i just tabbed it out 
myself and i'm pretty sure this is 100% accurate so check it out.

Standard Tuning: EADGBe
Capo: 3th Fret

Chords: (written as used without capo)

Cadd9 G D Ce|-3----|--3---|--2---|--0---|B|-3----|--3---|--3---|--1---|G|-0----|--0---|--2---|--0---|D|-2----|--0---|--0---|--2---|A|-3----|--2---|--0---|--3---|E|-x----|--3---|--0(2)|--3---|
Okay, so the most 'tricky' part (as far as you wanna call it tricky) is the rhytm of the Cadd9 and the G chords.. The rhytm of these two particular chords is used troughout the whole song except for the chorus..

You can easilly perform this with just an accoustic, that’s how i first played it. Do you have any comment, suggestions, deaththreaths or marriage proposels? Email me at timlawson100@hotmail.com.
