This is a really excellent tab, especially in terms of relating the lyrics and chords to each other. It is quite faithful to the "Surrealistic Pillow" version of the tune, except that this tab adds a sung chorus at the end that is not on the album. Still, I found this very helpful in working out some of the phrasing.
