I have written this tab by showing all the different figures with the instrument's abbreviation above it. At the end of the tab are the lyrics and structure. I have only included the strings that have any notes on them to save space. The figures are in order of appearance except the bass figures.
This song is in the key of A major (A B C# D E F# G#) and usually has a chord progression E-A-D-A. The chords the figures correspond to the root note, not the actual chord name.

(Ska-style staccato upstrokes, ghost notes can also be muted strings, rests, or any other note in the chord, rather than the note indicated. This figure is played very quietly by guitar one and the bass and drums ride over it. When guitar two plays it, it is a lot louder.)
