So this is my first fledgling attempt at tabbing. Any constructive 
criticism will be
appreciated. The rhythm and bars may be a little hard to decipher, since 
there is some
syncopation in the melody, i.e., lead-ins to the one beat, but bear with 
me.  Again, criticism is
welcome here, too, and if there is a faq or instruction on writing tab, 
I would be interested in
directions to it.

The melody line is mixed in among the chords and the trick is getting 
the melody note to
stand out over the rest of the chord by either hitting that string a 
little harder, or omitting the
notes on the higher strings so they don't drown it out. Play around with 
it, that's what I do. I tried
to approximate the strumming under te melody as best i could --  You 
know the groove, though,
it has a slow shuffle feel, with the bass at 1 and 3 and the chords on 
the 2 beat and right before three if you think of it in terms of 
4/4...the idea is
to get as many of those in as you can without sacrificing the melody 
line.
Anyway, here it is as I play it:
Prost
Matt
