Post-Chorus (this is where I get a little off, and may need work)

e -----------------------------------------|
B -----------------------2-2-0-0-----------|
G --1-1-1-2-2--2^--1-1-1-2-2-0-0-1---------|
D --2-2-2-3-3------2-2-2-2-2-0-0-2---------|
A --2-2-2-3-3------2-2-2---------2---------|
E -----------------------------------------| (x2)

And that's it. Use the same chords and strumming for each chorus and verse, and as for
solo.... well, you can either play the solo like normal(I'll put the tab for the solo
or you can skip it. I find if you're playing alone, the chorus sounds awkward like
because it goes from loud chorus to a somewhat empty/quiet solo feeling, so personally I
it. However, if you have a band or something, it may sound better with the solo.

Also, for the part at the end where he goes "a denial" over and over, just do the chorus.

Solo: (tabbed as if you still have the capo on)

e -------------------------------------|
B -------------------------------------|
G ---7-9---7-9-7-5-4-5-4---------------|
D -9-----5---------------7-5-7-9-7-5-4-|
A -------------------------------------|
E -------------------------------------| (x2)

e ----------------------|
B ----------------------|
G ----------------------|
D -5-4--5-4--5-4--5-4---|
A --------------------7-|
E ----------------------| (x4)

It sounds pretty good when played on an acoustic guitar, and it sounds pretty accurate
me (not 100% on the post-chorus though). If you think there are any mistakes, feel free
email me about any changes you feel I should make. Enjoy!
