So Far Away- Dire Straights

I hope this tab comes out Okay because the last time
I submitted a tab the right end of the page was kind of
cut out. This is one of my favorites from Dire Straights.
I suggest you listen to the song and play, it'll sound nice
if you tune your guitar to the song.

Key:
/=slide
^hammer on/ pull off

Intro:
