That took me aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages to tab, but at the end of it all I think 
it was worth it.
We now have an easy to use accurate tab for a brilliant song. I don't think 
you'll get a
better tab on the net, but if you do email me.


N.B LISTENING TO THE SONG AT ALL TIMES IS VITAL THIS TAB IS CORRECT TO THE 
BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE BUT
IF IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE THEN LISTEN TO THAT PART OF THE SONG AND IT WILL.
