You'll need a capo for this one on the 1st or 2nd fret.
The TAB for this might look a bit daunting at first, but it's based
on pretty straight forward chord shapes.
The only chords you need are these :
[EADGBE]332010 [EADGBE]002213 [EADGBE]022003 [EADGBE]320033 [EADGBE]353333
[C/G] [Am7/E] [Em] [G] [Gm7]  
[EADGBE] [EADGBE] [EADGBE] [EADGBE] [EADGBE]  
[353335] [575655] [131213] [131114] [224432]  
[Gm9]0022[A7]12 [F9]022[Fm7]030 [Bm/F#]022020 022010 332000
[Am6/E]To get[Em7] the[Em6] pic[Emadd#5]king pat[Cmaj7/G]tern in your head, I'll give a brief
explanation.
The key to it is the movement of the thumb. The thumb picks out
the notes on the E, A and D strings. For each chord played, the
order of strings which the thumb picks is the same - it goes
like this :
[A]Wh[D]il[E]e [D]the thumb gets on with this, use your other fingers to
fill in the notes on the top strings.
If you try it a few times, slowly, you should pick up the natural
rhythm which the picking pattern has.
Then, just practice !
I've tabbed the song out in full, although you'll soon realise
that a lot of it is very similar with certain sections being
002212 022030 022020 022010 332000

I fixed the spacing so it's easier to read while playing. (There's enough to do while playing this without trying to figure out where you are)

When in doubt, drop your pinky on the high e string. The pinky is there through most of the song.
