Bird And The Worm Tab
Song Title: The Bird And The Worm
Artist: The Used
Album: Lies For The Liars

In this song, I think you can play it in standard tuning, but since The Used
prefer the Dropped D Tuning (like almost all their songs), it's the tuning I used here. 
up to you whether you use Dropped D or the standard tuning.

Cheers!
