Notes:

-strum pattern is shown for Intro & Verses (same for both): d=down, u=up
-chords are written in for only one verse to avoid tab looking cluttered
-for harmonics, fret the note indicated, then play harmonic an octave (12
frets) up from that note
-I don't know the name of the second to last chord in the Chorus - I
put the notes (F,B,D) into a chord finder and it came out as
F flat5 6th (no 3rd), so that's what I'll call it. It's played like this:
EADGBE
xxx431
-bar lines indicate measures of 4/4 time
-song is in A Major, except for guitar solo section which is in D (solo
is in D Major)

^...bend (w=whole step) /...slide up
h...hammer on \...slide down
p...pulloff x...muted note
r...release bend ~...vibrato
..harmonic =...hold note

their interpretation of the song.)
