Live Bush Version performed on The Tonight show with Jay Leno
Original Version: Rolling Stones
Written by: Jagger/Richards
Chorded by Adam McGillivray

Chords are shown where they should be played along with the lyrics.
If theres a space after the chord then there is usually 2 beats before
the vocals starts. Ive tried to make it as easy as possible but listen
to the recording if ive screwed something up or you cant figure it out.

*note 1: Gavin sings only the first half of the original Verse 2.
The second half would include the optional lyrics included below.
