Music is a universal language, and needs not be translated. With it soul speaks to soul
Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
IntroThe Intro is a little confusing, if you want to get it right. The chords are basically...
E C7M Asus2You can play this and still sound good. But if you want to be perfect, then you should know that the guitarist also, after the Asus2, plays all open strings once, and an Em chord once, then repeats the whole thing. The second time he does this, he doesn't play the Em chord, and just goes right to E. This is kind of what it looks like. Listen to the song to get the rhythm perfectly. (* the v^v is to show downstrokes and upstrokes, if you were to continually move your hand up and down,even when not playing a note. I use it as a timing measurement.)E C7M Asus2 Em e|0---0-00-00-0000|00000000-0000000| B|0---0-00-00-0000|00000000-0000000|G|1---1-11-11-1111|00000000-2222000| then repeat, with a few subtle changes.

That's also the guitar part for most of the whole song. Here's the rest of the song: EMy name is Leslie Anne LevineC7M Asus2 EMy mother birthed me down a C7Mdry ravinAsus2e EMy mother birthed me faC7Mr too soonAsus2 EBorn at nine and dead at Bnoon Asus2 AFifteen years gone now, I still wander this C♯mparapet And shake my rattle boneA AFifteen years gone now, I still cling to the C♯mpetticoats Of the Cgirl who dBied with mEe
E C7M Asus2On the roofs above the streets The only love I've known's a chimney sweep Lost and lodged inside a flue Back in 1842 Fifteen years gone now, I still wail from these catacombs And curse my mother's name Fifteen years gone now, still a wastrel mesallied Has brought this fate on me
