This transcription probably isn't exact, but hopefully it'll get everybody
on the right idea of how to play this song.  I believe that Chris uses an
Octave pedal on the intro, and I don't have one..so the intro isn't exactly
how it's played..but the main notes are there.  If someone figures out a more
exact way, please email me and let me know.  The little fills in the song probably
aren't exact either..but they sound pretty good.
