I noticed that there were many different versions of this tab, and none of them
sounded correct to me. They were close, though. I made my own, and I think it
sounds most correct, but I not an expert. I am a bit of a perfectionist, and
I hate when people don include the number of repeats, so I added those too.
Choose for yourselves which version you think is best, but this is my opinion:

There some weird variations here of the main verse riff that I can figure
out. Sorry. It starts at 3:06 and ends at about 3:30.

Repeat Chorus 10x instead of 4x and fade out

Here the other three versions, I want to give them credit since I used part
of each of theirs. The Chorus was the same as mine in each version:
