                this is the first song I've ever tabbed so bear with me here.  this is one of my all 
favs and I felt that if you know this song then you are a true fan because it's from the 
lost second album, "We Have Come For Your Children" and you deserve to know how to play it.

so it starts out with some harmonics on the low e string and then the lead comes in:

e|---------------|
b|---------------|
g|---------------|let that last f ring and repeat
d|-------2p0---3-|
a|-0-3p0-----3---|
e|---------------|


then the chords |Am|F|D|G| I like to play the real chords but in any studio or live 
of this song I've ever heard they play the power chords like this:

e|---------------------------------------------------|
b|---------------------------------------------------|
g|---------10-1010-10101010-7-7-777-12-1212-12121212-|
d|-7-7-777-10-1010-10101010-7-7-777-12-1212-12121212-|
a|-7-7-777-8--8-8--8-8-8-8--5-5-555-10-1010-10101010-|
e|-5-5-555-------------------------------------------|

then let and Am chord ring and play:

e|----------|    e|---------|
b|---1-3^-1-|    b|---------|
g|-2--------|    g|---5-7^5-|
d|----------| or d|-7-------|
a|----------|    a|---------|
e|----------|    e|---------|

and into the verse:

last night in the...
|Am| |F| |

e|------------------------------------------|
b|------------------------------------------|
g|-------------10-10-10101010-1010-10101010-|

a|-7-xxxxxxxxx-8--8--8-8-8-8--8-8--8-8-8-8--|

a|-2-22-222-2-22-2222-|
e|-0-00-000-0-00-0000-|

chorus (which is the same as the intro and the bridge):

|Am|F|D|G|

e|---------------------------------------------------|
b|---------------------------------------------------|
g|---------10-1010-10101010-7-7-777-12-1212-12121212-|
d|-7-7-777-10-1010-10101010-7-7-777-12-1212-12121212-|
a|-7-7-777-8--8-8--8-8-8-8--5-5-555-10-1010-10101010-|
e|-5-5-555-------------------------------------------|

that pretty much sums it up.  like I said I prefer the real chords to the power chords 
on an acoustic.  enjoy it, love it, hate it.  and for props or criticizms you can feel 

Son of,
-Sam-
