I'm posting this song more as a cry for help than anything else. 
There are no other tabs for this great song, and so I sat down 
to write it out one afternoon. God granted me some good success, 
but there are still blanks in my tabbing. I'm hoping that by posting 
this admittedly incomplete tab, some of the more creative minds out 
there will become inspired and post some corrections. The main problem 
is the second to the last line in the chorus (the A B C#sus D part); 
I haven't been able to figure out the chord progression there yet. 
Another spot that might also be incorrect is the part of the verse right 
before the chorus, which has another troublesome (and relatively fast) 
chord progression. Anyway, here's what I got: 

Intro: 
A G D E

Verse:

A G D-G-D-A#
A G D-G-D-A#
A G D-G-D-A#
B C# F#m Bsus-B
D E

Chorus: 

A G 
F#/D E
A G
F#/D E
D E
A B C#sus D
D E

That's all I got. Looking forward to your contributions, thanks.

I think I might have a few suggestions for this song:

The verse progression is:

A G D - G, G#,
I've got my mind made up I gotta love you or leave you fast

I'm a little sketchie on the pre chours (I can't walk on water...), butI think it goes like this:

E C# F#m Bsus4-B
I can't walk on water, but if I chase you I might drown

D E
And I'm already up to my neck




And finally, the "it's either high time to make you mine" part is like this:


D E
It's either high time to make you mine or (I)

A C#7 F#m - F#
swear it's time to get out of town

D E
So please say "yes" quick - cuz the sun's going...


I'm not 100% on the C#7, but I think the bass and piano make it sound like a more interesting chord. I hope that helps.

sorry about the spacings with the chords over the words - they didn't seem to take when I hit submit!
