standard tuning

e----7------8------|--7------5------4----------------------------------
B-------------10---|----8------6------5----3-3/5-----------------------
G--9------9--------|---------------------------------------------------
D------------------|---------------------------------------------------
A------------------|---------------------------------------------------
E------------------|---------------------------------------------------

these are the two main guitar parts to this song; i'm sure you're more than
capable of figuring out the structure. then there's this weird bridge part,
that doesn't really have much guitar, but you can play something like this for it:

e----------------------------------------------------------------------
B-(8/10--8--6--5----8--6--5--3)--x2------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------

then back to the main parts for a while, and end with:

e-------7--------------------------------------------------------------
B------8---------------------------------------------------------------
G--9--9----------------------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------
