All fingerings are indicated in relation to their positions from the capo. 

This tablature is of the first verse and the ending of the song.  The first
verse is longer than the second and third verses.  Also, there are some
subtle differences in the actual notes played in each verse.  However, if
you learn the first verse and listen carefully to the track on the CD, you
should be able to pick up enough of the style to figure out how the second
and third verses should be played.

2nd Verse: 

Dark with darker moods is he 
Not a golden prince who's come 
Through columbines and wizardry 
To talk of castles in the sun 

Still I'll take a chance and see 
I found someone to love today 

3rd Verse: 

There's a sorrow in his eyes 
Like the angel made of tin 
What will happen if I try 
To place another heart in him 

In a Bleecker Street cafe 
I found someone to love today 
I found someone to love today
