This is my first attempt at writing a tab so bear with me.  This is one of
my favorite DC songs, both to listen to and to play.



You'll have to find the strum pattern on your own, but it's easy... here are
the chords I found go with it.  NOTE: The F#m, B, A, and G#m are played a
little differently (and I can't find the actual chord names), see the chord
chart below

E Esus Amaj7
E Esus F#m B A
E Esus Amaj7
E Esus F#m B A

The basic chords are these, I'm not sure what he's playing to make the
higher notes, or if there are 2 guitars.

E F#m A.2   A.2 G#m F#m E A (2x)

Repeat Intro (slower this time)
Repeat Verse (there is a filler played on the 2nd Amaj7; if you listen
closely, you should be able to play it)
Repeat Chorus
Repeat Intro


E      022100
Esus   022200
Amaj7  002120
F#m    044200
B      004400
A      002200
A.2 (Higher version) 077600
G#m    066400

E-mail me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure this is close...  ENJOY

Great tab! My only correction would be the subtle playing style on the 5th and 6th bars of the intro, but it makes it sound so much better (and more accurate to how it sounds on the recording). I'll just list the "D" string, cause it's only the symbols (slides, hammers, etc.) that change in that part. Listen for the attack of certain notes, and "fret noise" on the slides - it helps tab it accurately ;)

(line two of the intro - bars 5 and 6)
