These are the chords of the acoustic version. This song
is pretty cool and buskable methinks.
low E |--3---3---3---|--7---7---7---|---8----8----8---|---8---|
      |--5---5---5---|--9---9---9---|--10---10---10---|--10---|
      |--5---3---5---|--9---7---9---|--10----8---10---|--10---|  back to start
      |--4---5---4---|--8---7---8---|---9---10----9---|---8---|
      |--3---3---3---|--7---9---7---|---8----8----8---|---8---|
high E|--3---3---3---|--7---7---7---|---8----8----8---|---8---|

You'll obviously have to listen to the song to get the rhythm.
But heres a *quick* explanation.
A lot of the 1st. A quick 2nd (3/4 strums). A little more 1st. big chord change.

Sorry if it may seem a little patronising, but you need to hear the
song whatever. I'm probably right in saying that when the song gets
to around the 7 or 8 frets the two highest strings are muted. I'm
not too sure tho.
