(for this part, listen for the timing.. the sets of three are a little bit syncopated.

the way it's tabbed is perfect with the 8-beat measure, though)

(little guitar part again and a drum roll)
then back to

CHORUS

then the V2 part again until the end when he says

"So take in what is yours and fly away" one final time, where the bass line goes like

this, very simple:

G|--------|--------|--------|--------||--------|
D|--------|--------|--------|--------||--------|
A|3---3---|3---3---|3---3---|3---3---||3~~~~~--|
D|--------|--------|--------|--------||--------|


~ in my tablature means let it ring, hold the note out

P.S. ~ I'm sorry, but at different points in the tablature I'm using 8-beat and

16-beat measures interchangeably. If you listen to the song, you'll know which ones to

play. I use 16-beat more often, if that helps.

This is my first tab!
