This is a version originally posted on a James Taylor forum and I believe it to be very 
close to the original recording.

A/D   G9   A/D  D/F# G9

D/F#  Em  A4  D  *3: SEE NOTE AT BOTTOM


*1:  Hit the G once (6th string) with your middle finger on the 3rd fret allowing for 
action with your index and ring fingers on the note pairs (1st - 3rd string):

        G(Eb  da  Eb  f#c#  Eb)  D/F#  etc.

*2:  This is really a Bm7 flat 6th and very similar to the Frozen Man intro.  Tabbed 
like this:
x24035 (fret),  x13x25 (finger)

*3:  This is virtually the same as the Intro line as described in note 1.
