"Uhn, Ha, open wide." "I do my bestfor you" Fig. 2 is what I could come up with- there is a lot of interplay between Tim Reynolds and Dave in this part of the song, but play this with the album- it sounds decent. This basic rhythm is used throughout the song, and the only exception is at the "I do my best for you" line, where the second ending is sung in time with the strikes of the strings (The last line of the above tab) The main body of the song uses Fig. 2 along with the 2nd ending for the "I do my best for you" line. Here's the chorus. Before playing this, see my note at the bottom of the page. Fig 3 "DI think the wCorld of yoDu ODh my heCart, I do D BDlood thru my veCins for youD YDou alone have alCl of me D ID give my woCrld to youD TDo you i wiCll be true" Into Fig I Repeat Fig 2 for verses, same chord changes for next Chorus.

Outro jam

Use same chords from Fig 2- listen to album to get exact pattern, I couldn't accurately tab the rhythm on my computer. Dave avoids using the high strings on his guitar for the most part, so the C and D chords of the chorus are played as such:

D x C x

x x 7 x 7 9 5 9 x 7
