   E7#9
E -----------------|- - -|

G -7---------------|- - -|  [As a true Focus purist, I think it would be
D -6---------------|- - -|   blasphemous to transcribe yodelling for the
A -7---------------|- - -|   guitar...so I won't]
E -----------------|- - -|
   |

Note: Yes, the E7#9 at the end of measure 4 (and elsewhere) is the dreaded
      "Hendrix" chord (as far as I can tell....either that, or I just use it
      as a surrogate for distorted-guitar-chaos).  The pinky slide from the
      G in this chord to the F# (added sixth) at the start of the A is, at
      best, a subtle effect.  I think I hear it in places, others disagree.
      Anyway, I like it, and it occurs naturally with my lousy (lazy) fingers.
      On the A strumming in measures 1, 2, and others, pick real hard, and
      shake the fretted A (D string).  The out-of-tuneness this causes is very
      noticable on the song.  BTW, if your amp is not capable of at least 50%
      total harmonic distortion, don't even bother with this song!

Key:
    @   = whole note           }    = quarter rest
    !   = half note            \__/ = tied notes (don't re-sound)
    |   = quarter note         ^    = hammer or pull (you figure which one)
    _|  = single eighth note   ~    = slide (you figure which way)
    _|. = dotted eighth note
    |_| = eighth notes
    ]   = sixteenth note
