Tabbed by: Gloria Lee

About 4 years overdue! What's shown below is for the first verse and first chorus. Repeat the entire thing
for the second verse and second chorus (see note at the end).

For the rest of the song, start back at the beginning. In my version, I play chords instead of the tabs
for the second chorus. They are as follows:

e|--2---4---2---0---|--4---2---0---0---|
B|--3---5---3---2---|--5---3---2---0---|
G|--4---6---2---2---|--6---2---2---1---|

A|--2---4---0---0---|--4---0---0---2---|
E|--2---4---0---0---|--4---0---0---0---|
