^this part is actually just a barre F#m chord, but this
sounds better when playing
with just a guitar
[E5]Empty a[B5]rms and a[D5]n aching [A5]heart...

^this part has a deceptively tricky rhythm, listen to the song.
*note for beginners: bar the E and B strings
with your index, bend the G with your ring and middle, and get the 12 on B with your pinky.

^ this last bit is the only part i'm not sure about, but it sounds about right.
