                I first heard this track live at Portsmouth Guildhall, and thought i'd try to learn it. 
couldn't find a tab anywhere, so I was forced to listen to the song repeatedly untill i 
play it. I thought I may as well try and get a little credit for my efforts and be the
first to post this tab enjoy

Capo: 4th fret (note: tabbed as though there is no capo, so 0 on bottom E would sound 4)

Tuning: Drop D

FIRST BIT (VERSE)

strum each chord and emphasise the melody on the a string with light struming on others. 
listen to the song for rhythm (as always)

e---X----X------X----X--------X----X--X-X--X-X-X-X-X--------------------|
b---0----0------0----0--------0----0--0-0--0-0-0-0-0--------------------|
g---0----0------0----0--------0----0--0-0--0-0-0-0-0--------------------|
d---0----0------0----0--------0----0--0-0--0-0-0-0-0--------------------|
a---4----5------4----0--(0-0)-4----5--4-0--5-4-0-5-4--------------------|
D---5----5------5----5--(0 0)-5----5--5-5--5-5-5-5-5--------------------|

SLIDY BIT (VERSE PART 2)

Theres a cool sounding yet easy to play slidy bit here. Its easy because you dont need 
of the other fingers, you can just concentrate on the slide: a quick   "strum note - 
up - slide down - pull off" in one fluid motion, while still strumming the other notes.
Just let your right hand continue strumming the chord while the left does the fingerwork.

e---(0)---(0)---(0)--------(0)---(0)---(0)-----------------------------|
b---(0)---(0)---(0)--------(0)---(0)---(0)-----------------------------|
g----0-----0-----0----------0-----0-----0------------------------------|
d----0-----2-----2/4/2p0----0-----2-----2/4/2p0------------------------|
a----0-----0-----0----------0-----0-----0------------------------------|
D----0-----0-----0----------0-----0-----0------------------------------|

Thats the lot for the verses, untill the end when theres a leading chord into
the chorus: 0
            0
            0
            0
            2
            3

CHORUS:

A (minus the bottom string), G type thing - 550055 (fives on top e and b
strings only played), G type thing, A, G type thing Em type thing -
220000, G type thing, then G (with the 5s)

After the chorus there's a little riff that goes

e-------------------|
b-------------------|
g-------------------|
d----------- 0-2----|
a---0-2-2/4---------|
D-2-----------------|

and then back into the verse.

Finally theres a little bit of piano before the final chorus. I've aranged it
for guitar:

e---4-4-4-4-4-4-3-3-3-3-3-3-2---3---2-----4-4-4-4-4-4-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-|
b---5-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-4-3---3---3-----5-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-4--5-|
