Plain White T's tabs for Rhythm of love

Guitar tabs with lyrics

I saw Plain White T's perform this song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Tim was using
a capo on the 8th fret and Tom on the 4th.
Gtr. 1 (acoustic): Capo 8 [All guitars are in standard tuning, EADGBE]
Gtr. 2 (acoustic): Capo 4 [All chords are relative to capo]
Gtr. 3 (electric): no capo
ALL Chords in parenthesis are Gtr.2
I think the A chord diagramG/BG/B in the bridge may just be a A chord diagramG+G and the A chord diagramBB is probably played by the bass, but
you can play it either way.
Intro:
Gtr. 1: (Capo 8)(Not the exact number of times he strums each chord, but you can figure it out)
