Here's a song I tabbed I thought you might want to add to the archive.

"Shelter" by The Alarm
There are actually two guitars, one playing the chords, another playing the
lead riffs.
I believe the song is written in the key of A, if this helps.
Chords:
B5 x2440x
A x02220
D x00232
E 022100
For each riff, I just use the strings it uses to save a little space.
Riff 1:
 
 E|---2---0------------------------|
 B|-0---0----0-3--0-2--0-0-0----0--|
 G|--------------------------2-2---|

Riff 2:
 
 E|-4-2-0-5--2-0---4-|
 B|--------------3---|

Riff 3:
 
 E|-4-5-7-7-5-7-7-4-5-

(Lyrics may not be exactly right, I'm writing from memory)
Intro: B5, play Riff 1, pause, play again (second time is actually slightly
different)
