CHORDS 
(played through out lyrics as the changes are written. play the 
rests by muting 
the strings directly at the end of the note preceding the rest. 
you might want to 
cut the preceding note a little bit short) 
(these probably don't have to be played exactly correct, 
or as they're written, so as 
long as you follow the changes it'll probably be fine)

ALTERNATE CHORD TABLATURE 

The following are three more ways you can play the chord 
changes through out the song. 
They are each a bit more simple than the version listed at the 
beginning. In actuality 
all four of these version are played at different points in the 
song. I have not tabbed 
out every place they occur in the song because of how much space 
it would take up. You can 
play any or all them because they match the song and don't need 
to be exact. Just hit the 
changes on time.

ALSO 


Throughout each verse and chorus the Dm at the end of each 
line (between lyrics) can be 
played either of these ways (not sure which is right, but I 
like the second one better)-
