D Am C G x2notes: the quick change to C and G at the end of many lines is omitted it occurs everywhere but 'if there ain't no wall / you got to move...' the run through from C to Am via the B note is a familiar ny trick... Neil embellishes the G chords by hammering on the E note on the second fret of the D string with his index finger. I also believe that he plays some of his G chords in the D chord shape at the 7th fret G/D . Strum loosely with an easy feel.
