The picking is fairly random and you can pick up the general idea just by listening to the song.
Something like this works for the verse:
 
 e------------------|-----------------|
 B--------0---------|-----------------|
 G----9-------9-----|-------5-------6-|
 D------9---9-----9-|---6-------7-----|
 A--------------7---|-----------------|
 E--0---------------|-4---4---5---5---|

And the chorus is like this:
 
 e------------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
 B--------0---------|-------0---------|-------0---------|-------0---------|
 G----6-------6-----|---8-------8-----|---9-------9-----|---6-------6-----|
 D------7---7-----7-|-----9---9-----7-|-----9---9-----9-|-----6---6-----6-|
 A--------------7---|-------------7---|-7-----------7---|-4-----------4---|
 E--5---------------|-7---------------|-----------------|-----------------|
