Fixed a few wrong chords, missing chords, and capo placement
from the other version.  Should be capo 3, not 2 as the other tab says.
And the Bb chord in the other tab should be G.  I also added
a guitar version of the piano.

Maybe my career will die


Here’s a few ways I like to add color to this by incorporating
some of the bass and piano line.

All numbers relative to a capo on 3
\ indicates downsrum. / indicates up.

this way for a brighter sound
C \  \/ \      F    \ /\ \      C
---0---------------1----------------0---|
---1---------0h1---1----------0h1---1---|
-0-0-------0-------2--------------0-0---| repeat
---2-------------3-3--------3-------2---|
---3---------------3----------------3---|
-------------------1--------------------|

Or this way for more of a bass thing

C \  \/ \       F    \ /\ \      C
---0---------------1----------------0---|
---1---------------1----------------1---|
---0---------------2----------------0---| repeat
---2---------------3----------------2---|
---3---------2h3---3----------2h3---3---|
-3---------3-----1-1--------1-----3-----|
