All chord and times are approximations.  This song is supposed to be in drop D tuning
(DGCFAd).  I tuned the song to standard tuning (don't like switching back and forth
too much).  This sounds pretty close to the song.  If you don't like it, just play the
chords 1 step higher (F = G; A# = C and so on) on drop D.  Solo is the same way (5=7).
I didn't quite get all the riffs in the verses.  They change many times.  I'll work on
that later.  This is a beautiful song (my favorite VU song).  It is not too difficult
either.  Enjoy it.

About the artist behind I Found A Reason Tab:

The Velvet Underground was an American rock band first active from 1965 to 1970 (and 1970 to 1973 in a different incarnation). Its best-known members were Lou Reed and John Cale. Although never commercially successful while together, the Velvet Underground are often cited by critics as one of the most important and influential groups of their era.[1] A famous remark, often attributed to British musician Brian Eno, is that while only a few thousand people bought the first Velvet Underground record upon its release, almost every single one of them was inspired to start a band.[2]
