This is my first tab, but here goes, the first single off Gusters new album. I'm 99% sure this right.
This song is played with two electric guitars with very light desortion and a bass (at least as I saw them live)

Standard tuning. 
No capo.

Guitar 1: Am C, play chord once at the beginning of each phrase

Guitar 2: strums Am C
