I've no idea what the other tab of this song is, but it's not right.  Here's a pretty much 100% accurate version:

Play this through in order, following the instructions as you go.


                             Intro

           Look at your young men fighting...
Gb|------|-----------------------------------------------------
Db|------|-----------------------------------------------------
Ab|------|----7h9-7------------------9--7-7-7------------------
Eb|-12/9-|-0---------3~-----------------------3-2-1-0~---------
                                                                           ^^^^^^^
                                                                              Fast
  
Gb|------------------------------------------------------------
Db|------------------------------------------------------------
Ab|------------------------------------------------------------
Eb|-3-2--0~-----3-3--0~-----3-2~----0-0--3-3-2-0-0---3-2~------


                Verse

    My hands are tied...   (heavily distorted guitars come in)
Gb|----------------------------------
Db|----------------------------------
Ab|----------------------------------
Eb|-5-55-5--5-55-5--5-55-5--5-55-5---


Gb|----------------------------------
Db|----------------------------------
Ab|----------------------------------
Eb|-0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3p0-3-3-3-3-3-2--

Gb|-------------------------------------------
Db|-------------------------------------------
Ab|-------------------5-5---------------------
Eb|-0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3-----2-1-0--0-0-00-0-0-0-
                          ^^^^^
                           Fast

Gb|---------------------------------------------------
Db|---------------------------------------------------
Ab|-------------------------------------------5-5-----
Eb|-3-3p0-3-3-3-3-3-2--0-0-00-0-0-0-3-3-----5~-


Play this twice over the first guitar solo:

Gb|--------------------------------------------------------------------
Db|---------------------------------------------------------------------
Ab|------------------------------------------------------------5-5------
Eb|-0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3p0--3-3-33-3-2--0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3-----2-1-0
                                                          
And end with:

Gb|------
Db|------
Ab|--5~--
Eb|------

There's no bass for a few bars at this point.  When Axl sings
"So I never fell for Vietnam...", play the following once:

Gb|------------------------------------------------------------
Db|------------------------------------------------------------
Ab|-----------2~----------------------------2~----------3-3-5-5
Eb|-3~-----------------0----0-----3~----------------0----------


                   Chorus

Play all of this twice:

Gb|--------------------------------------------
Db|--------------------------------------------
Ab|---------2--2-2--------7p6p5--7-7--7-7p6p5--
Eb|-3--3-3----------0--------------------------

Gb|--------------------------------------------
Db|--------------------------------------------
Ab|---------2--2-2----------3-3-5-5------------
Eb|-3--3-3----------0-0-0----------------------


Over Slash's second solo, play the chorus again twice, but replacing

Gb|---------              Gb|-------
Db|---------              Db|-------
Ab|-3-3-5-5-     with     Ab|-3---5-
Eb|---------              Eb|-------

And ending with this after the second repetition:

Gb|----
Db|----
Ab|----
Eb|-0~-

    Look at the blood we're spilling...
Gb|---------------------------------------------------
Db|---------------------------------------------------
Ab|-------------------------7h9-7---------------------
Eb|-3----0----3--2----0-----------------3-2-0--3--2---

Now play the verse once, then the chorus twice, followed by this
outro played four times:


                 Outro

Gb|----------------------------------
Db|----------------------------------
Ab|---------2-2-2-2------------------
Eb|-3-3-3-3---------0-00-0-00-0-0----

Gb|----------------------------------
Db|----------------------------------
Ab|---------2-2-2-2---------3-3-5-5--
Eb|-3-3-3-3---------0-00-0-----------

And then end the song on:

Gb|-----
Db|-----
Ab|-----
Eb|-3~--
