Any corrections or comments. The timing I've indicated is totally
Approximate, but fairly easy to pick up from the actual song.

Intro. Rest for 4 bars of accordian intro then repeat the following twice :

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|2-2-----0-0-1--2--2-------------|-------------------------------0|
D|----2-2-------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------3---5-5----0|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5-------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Verse 1. Only difference from Intro is the slide up in the first bar.
Repeat twice :

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|2-2-----0-0-/4-2--2-------------|-------------------------------0|
D|----2-2-------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------3---5-5----0|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5-------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Chorus. Repeat this riff 4 times :

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------5|--------------------------------|
A|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-3-5-5----|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5------/|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

And then the following post-chorus bit twice:

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|------------7---5---------------|--------------------------------|
D|/7------------------------------|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------33--5-5----0|----3---5-5-3-5---3--5--5-------|
E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|

Verse 2. Same as intro riff repeated twice.
Chorus. As above, including the 4 bars of post-chorus stuff.
Verse 3. Same as verse 1.
Chorus. Without the 4 bars of post-chorus. Repeat to fade.
