- listen to song to get strumming pattern. It can be written by tab
  but the only way to get it to perfection is to listen to the song
  and get it yourself.

- I broke the song up into verses to make it easier to understand and play.
  The way I broke the song up into verses may not necessarily be the way it
  was written by that artist but all the wording is the same.

The "riff" is a simple c - c/b - a7 rundown. Play the c, then c/b then a7. Same effect and easier to play. C on the "ever", c/b on the "have" and a7 on the "had" (c = x 3 2 0 1 0) (c/b = x 2 0 0 1 0) (a7 = x 0 2 0 2 0).
