This song is easy to play and the chords laid out below still have 
the groove of the song.  Listen to the song for the rhythm, but this
is uber fun and cool to play on guitar.  I have a female vocalist that
sings with me when I play this song and (obviously) I do Kanye's vocals.
To help see where the chords change in the lyrics themselves, I have laid
them out in whole below.  Enjoy and feedback is appreciated.
