--- Note: This is a very simplified version, but it works to get the gist of the song down. And, it is complete. I fought with a previous guy's tab, and after taking out all the 7ths and working out the details (G6, outro, etc), I figured I should share. On my acoustic, it sounds pretty cool – much improved to me anyways. I hope you find it useful, and comments to perfect/correct are welcome. C.Hall
