I thought I'd write down the tabs for this since I was messing around in my dorm one day 
figured it out.  I like to start out with just the basic pattern, then start adding in 
harmony.


e|--------------------------|
B|--1-----------------------|
G|-----0--2--------------0--|
D|-----------2--3-----3-----|
A|-----------------3--------|
E|--------------------------|


e|--0-----------------------|
B|--1--3--1--0-----------0--|
G|-----0--2-----2--0--2--0--|
D|-----------2--3-----3-----|
A|-----------------3--------|
E|--------------------------|


Every once in awhile you can change the last chord so that it doesn't resolve.  Usually 
the second to last time through the melody.
e|--0-----------------------|
B|--1--3--1--0-----------0--|
G|-----0--2-----2--0--2-----|
D|-----------2--3-----3--0--|
A|-----------------3--------|
E|--------------------------|

Here's the quicker part played over the top of the other two. You can play around and do 
lot of different things with this, change notes to whatever sounds good but this is the 
melody.

e|-----0--3--1--0-----0-----------------------------|
B|--1--------------1-----3--1-----1--------1--1--0--|
G|-----------------------------2-----0--------------|
D|--------------------------------------3-----------|
A|--------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------|


Keep in mind that this is just the basic tab, have fun with it both rhythmically and 
if you want.
