This is a response to the comments on some of the other chord charts begging
for a tab of this song. Hope this helps.

*Note: The Intro, Interlude 1, and the Outro are strummed and I have included all 
the chord shapes, but they are not tabbed for timing like the rest of the
song. Play around with up and down strumming to find the pattern. 

Tuning: Standard (Capo 4th fret)
