[ Old version ]

Here's a fun one for you to play around with.  One of those songs
everyone loves but will never admit it.

D|-------9-9-----------------------------12--------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|


[Verse] is:  G/A/D/G  G/A/D/G  G/A/Bm/A

I'm not really sure of the chorus.  It may be because I'm playing the
verse in the wrong key because I have the chords wrong for the chorus.
For the chorus, you can get away with E/G#/A

I'd say the whole thing could use some work, so feel free to chip in.

And while I'm at it, I'd love to trade SUPERCHUNK tab with anyone.

My worries away

there is no Hm but g is right next to h on the keyboard so im guesing its meant to be a Gm

some people call it "H" instead of "B" - it's a Bm chord
