Slight correction to main melody near the end.e|---5---5---5-----------------6-8---6-8--------8-5----|B|-----6-------6------8-6---------------------------6--|G|---------------5--------5-----------------5----------|D|-0-------0-------------------------------------------|A|------------------7--------8-----8------8---7--------|E|-----------------------------------------------------|

EDIT: actually you can play the open D string there, but A7 definitely comes after D0
