Notes:
- Parentheses ( ) around a lower case letter means a note should be 
  played instead of a chord.
- The chords are "pushed" often falling before the beat.

Charted by Dexex

I write chord charts for my own use as a rhythm guitarist. I don't 
claim they are the "right" way. They're intended to be taken as my
approach to a song, not to notate exactly how a song was played on a
recording.
