Verse 1 (0:48):

 Spent the last year, Rocky Mountain Way  [Fill 1]
 Couldn't get much higher                 [Fill 1]

 Time to open fire                        [Fill 2]

            A7                                           B7

 Says it doesn't matter                                              [Fill 1]
 Bases are loaded and Casey's at bat, playing it play by play        [Fill 1]

(This really wasn't easy, I'm not even sure if it's right to classify
this as guitar although I think it's distorted with one of those Frampton
wind pipe thingys. This is the best I could get so you have something to
play at this part.)
