Sorry for the "rag-tag" look of this. I got part of it from Alt.guitar, and
did the rest myself. Oh well, here it is....

 I never realized the nevada one didn't have the solos, since I
already knew it, I haven't looked at them. Well, this is going to be
the whole song (or the itnro anyway), but the solo is in there. It may
not be perfect, this was tabbed from playing by ear, but it sounds
good to me, and it's how I've been playing it for a long time.

Enjoy...
