Bah, I wanted a good chord 'tab', so here it is!

 E|-3-3--3------0-0-----2----2-----2-----0-----0-------0--0----0---0---0-|

 e|-3-3--3------2-3-----3----0-----3-----3-----3-------0--3----0---0---3-|

These can be mixed around (Gs with other Gs, etc), but the ones I put with the song, I
prefer. So if you're like me, and like to be lazy, try strumming, G*, G*, G*, D/F#, Em7,
Em7, Em7, D/F# (Repeat)
Note: G/F# is a special one, (I made it up :P) and is difficult to swap out of this
song, but you can at the end of the intro.
Instead of Cadd9 G/F# G, try Cadd9 D/F# G or Cadd9 Gsus2 G. It'll make the minor or
whatever nasty sound a little less apparent.
Note #2: There's an odd delay in D/F#, not a mistake. The chords change where they
change on the words, finally!
