The background guitar in the intro and verses 1 and 2 is
neat stuff. Listen to it to get the rhythm. Once it starts
it just flows right along. It's in the background behind the
orchestra on verses 3 and 4 so I left it out. To play it
barr the 12th fret and use the ring and little finger to
play the 13 and 15 notes.

E,B,G,D,A,E = guitar strings.

chorus is probably not quite right.
I think it's: Em, Bm, C, G
Em, Bm, Am, G
