If your ears are good enough to know which tabs are wrong, I'd suggest that they are good enough to work out the 'right' tab.

It's a pretty simple song....

I agree. This is a three chord song. Pick a key you want to sing in. A simple chord book will show you the first, fourth, and fifth chords for any key. Or just learn the three chords in one key and use a capo.

In music, unless you are playing very serious complicated pieces in an orchestra, a good ear will progress you further as a musician than accumulating a bunch of tabs.

Listen for the changes.

Not bad ideas I guess. It would do me good to learn how to figure songs out by ear, I feel spoiled being able to get tablature and have the songs shown to me. Thanks fellas.

Nonething wrong with using the chords and words method on paper, but tab on a three chord song?

I just don't get it.

Use ears, not eyers.
