Winterlong by Neil Young

Also famously covered by The Pixies

This is not a version played by anyone I know (although I'm sure someone else may have 
it together like I have).
All I've done is take the basic chords of the verses and intro and combined them with 
lead line.
The rest, I'm afraid, I haven't added anything to, mainly because I'm too busy singing 
the time.
If you think of anything, obviously, let us all know :o)
For these parts I've just put the chords and the lyrics.
This is not an exact tab as I tend to play extra stings accidentally on purpose.  Give 
a go, you'll see what I mean.

P.S. Where I've put (1b) / (2b) for the number of bars the chord is played for, I may 
be wrong.
Not knowing the time signature I'm sure some bozo will tell us all it's actually half a 
and a full bar but to all
those bozo's out there, I've communicated what I mean so shut up!

P.P.S. This is my first ever tab!! :o)

Chord at end of pre-chorus should be A major, not A minor. Chord at end of chorus should be D major, not B minor, and the tab for the A major chord directly before that is wrong (2nd fret on D,G and B strings, not 1st).

Other than that, everything's pretty much right and gives the basic gist of the song. Nice tab, thanks.
