This is leaving out the Tons and tons of ghost notes use generously
thorughout the song.  This is pretty accurate as far as playing the
song recognizably.

Okay, this is all that really needs to be tabbed, I think.  If someone
really can't figure out the last few bars of the song, just combine
verse 2 and the chorus' harmonics plus the playing around in the key
of E up high on the top two strings.
