I'm not great at tabbing stuff out, but the main progression is:

D, (d-string) 2-4-2-4-2-0, (a-string) 2 (d-string ) 0, D
D, (d-string) 2-4-2-4-2-0, (a-string) 2 (d-string ) 0, D (d-string) 2-4-2-4-2-0, (a-string) 2 (d-string ) 0, G

The chorus is D, A, G, (d-string) 2-4-2-4-2-0, D, A, G, (d-string) 2-4-2-4-2-0, G

The bridge is tough. I play it just G, A. Although I think it's more complicated than that. I know when Frank plays
it, he adds in some signal notes here and there, but this should be sufficient to make it sound very close. I hope
you can understand this. I'm too lazy to write it out properly. Good luck!
