Tune your guitar normally.

Use some light crunch distortion, and the bridge pickup.
Use delay to repeat the notes after one beat.
(Listen to chord at 0:20 for an example of this.)

(same as intro) 

Stanger, stranger in a strange land
He looked at me like I
Was the one who should run
I watched as he watched us
Get back on the bus
I watched the way it was
The way it was when he was with us

And I really don't mind
Sleeping on the floor
But I can't sleep after what I saw
I wrote this letter to tell you
The way I feel   oh...

                            Am     G  D
 I wish you were here 

                              Am     G  D
 I wish you were here 

                         Am
To see what I could see

      G  D
To hear

                                  Am    G - D - G - A
And I wish you were here oh...             ( fade)
