Additional notes:
This tab is a transcription of the album version of the song. 

I have tried to capture the main feel of the song. Transcribing every part,
every measure, note for note turned out to be too tricky and would probably 
be too tedious to read.

There are some variations on the main rhythm section:

David plays short bursts of galloping 16th triplets here and there. 
Feel free to add some as well if you want to spice things up a bit.

When the vocal part appears you should just play the 1st and 2nd measure instead of all three.

By the end of the song the 2nd measure is played slightly differently, namely
   |--3--|  |--3--|  |--3--|  |--3--|    
   E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  E  4x
|--------------------------------------|
|-----------6-----6-----------5--6--8-o|
|-----------------------4--------------|
|--7-----7-----5-----5-----5-----------|
|-----5-------------------------------o|
|--------------------------------------|

That happens only once I think.


Have fun
