CHORUS

LAST TWO CHORDS:  A  G (with toggle switch)

-----------------------------------------
VERSES: Behind the strumming acoustic there is an electric:
            G                           C             Am C G
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-4-4----4-4----4-4----4-4-----5-5-----5------5----4-4----4-4----4-4----4-4-|
D-5-5----5-5----5-5----5-5-4/5-5-5-4/5-5------5----5-5----5-5----5-5----5-5-|
A-4/5----4/5----4/5----4/5----2/3-----2/3---320--3-4/5----4/5----4/5----4/5-|
E-2/3----2/3----2/3----2/3-------------------------2/3----2/3----2/3----2/3-|

CHORUS:
          Em    E F                   G
        E-7---7-7-12---12---12---12---12---12---12---12----|
        B-8---8-9---15B--15B--15B--15B--15B--15B--15B--15B-|
        G-9-9-9-9------------------------------------------|
        D--------------------------------------------------|
        A--------------------------------------------------|
        E--------------------------------------------------|

Then another guitar joins and they play two different melodies:
          A
        E----------------------------------|
        B-----------12-14-15-12-12---------|
        G---11-12-14-----------------------|
        D-14-------------------------------|
        A----------------------------------|
        E----------------------------------|

          A
        E-12-------------------------------|
        B-----------------17B17-15-14-12---|
        G-------------------------------14-|
        D----------------------------------|
        A----------------------------------|
        E----------------------------------|

PRE 2nc CHORUS: Just before the second chorus there is a little subtle
background lick just after the words 'touch me':
          G
        E-330--------------|
        B----30------------|
        G------4P2P0-4P2P0-|
        D------------------|
        A------------------|
        E------------------|

LAST 2 CHORDS: The last two chords of the song are 'A' to 'G'. The effect at the end is
achieved by using a Les Paul style guitar and turning the top volume, for the neck
pickup, off and then whilst holding the G flicking the toggle switch quickly. It helps
if you stand next to a loud amp aswell, because then you get the feedback starting to
creep in!!!
