This is how this songs is played or rather can be played over an accoustic, the other
chords versions of this song don't really allow you to play the song with the power and
energy with which this song can be played on an accoustic or at leat thats what i think,
i mean check out the unplugged of Nirvana or Pearl Jam...they do keep the energy of the
songs with them even  without distortion...

Now you'll have to find out by yourself what rhythm do you want to play,for example in
the intro bit you can only strum the chords once...but if you are playing by yourself
like on an acoustic then it may not sound all that impressive...so what i do is is play
the chords, 
 G C in (D D UDUDUDUD DD) each and then
 F (D D) C (D D) G (D D UDUD) 
adding a lil' dead notes before switching to the next chord,and i swear the rythm
changes every time I play.
So figure out the pattern you'll enjoy struming for this song!


Rhythm A :-
Rhythm for the parts before the verses and in the verses...
G5 -(DDUD) -Strike Damp Notes- F5 -(UDU) C5 -(D) A#5 -(D) x3
C5- (DUDUDDUD)
C5-A#5-G-F
Intro: Play G (Open) slide your strumming finger/pick from the low E string to the
higher e..going through one string at a time
then play G (Bare) C F C G x 2 times

Play the chorous part with the into rythem


G (Open)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G (Open)
Oh, won't you please take me home
G(Bare)
Take me down to the paradise city
            C 
Where the grass is green
And the girls are pretty
F               C              G
Oh, won't you please take me home

Play: (Since no singing is requierd here you can strum the chords once)
 v   ^ v ^ v   ^ v ^ v v v
