Tuning: Drop D Dadgbe 

I figured this song out by watching the video of him live on youtube.  It's pretty easy 
fun to play. The picking can get some time to get used to, i'll try to tab it out as 
as I can. He uses the same picking for a lot of songs, like for Song for a Friend. The  
isn't perfect but it's close enough. 

() = harmonic 
 ~ = let ring

D|--2-2---2-----2-----------2-2-------------------2~-------------------------| 

Break is verse played x2 

after is 2nd verse, then chorus played only x2 then 
the part after it: 

      Bm* repeat x2      then        Cadd9   x2              then 

e|----------0----------------------3---3-------------------------------------| 
B|------3-----3-----3-3------------3-----3-----3-3---------------------------| 
G|------0---------0-0-----0--------0---------0-0-----0-----------------------| 
D|------4-----------4--------------2-----------2-----------------------------| 
A|----2-----------------2--------3---3-----3-------3-------------------------| 
D|--0-----0-----0------------------------------------------------------------| 

        B7 
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|------0---0-------0-------0~-----------------------------------------------| 
G|------2-----2-----2-2-----2~-----------------------------------------------| 
D|----1-1---------1-1-----1-1~-----------------------------------------------| 
A|--2-----2-----2-------2---2~-----------------------------------------------| 
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------| 


  The part where he sings "uninvoooolved" is just Em7 played 1x, Bm* played 1x, Cadd9 
2x.  The 2nd time he sings it there's a quick B7.


        Em7     Bm*     Cadd9    B7 
  uninivooooooooooooooooooooollllvvved....... 


The last part is just the verse repeated. End with picked Em7 and Cadd9.  After that 
done!!! Good Luck!
