[Theme]

     rake these notes, don't finger pick!

      ^these bass notes are very important; strike them hard on your downward rakes!

        upward rake like in the intro
E|------2-2-2--2-2------2-2-2-2--2-2-2--------------------------------------|
B|------1-1-1--1-1------0-0-0-0--1-1-1-----\5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5----------|

D|---------------0h2----2--\5---4-----3-----2--2-2-------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|

Its pretty much the same theme throughout the song, except during the verses instead of doing this:
E|------------------------------------|
B|-----\5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5--------|
G|-----\6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6-6--6--------|
D|-----\5-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-5--5--------|
A|---0--0------0------0------0--------|
E|------------------------------0-----|

Do this:
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------x--x----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------x--x----------------------------------------|
D|---2---4---2---4-------2---------------and back to the turnaround--------|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---2\4-----2---2--2--------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------0----------0------------------------------------|
