Tuning:STANDARD

This song is one of the best songs for guitar players up and coming.
This song absulutley sounds awsome on my 12 string.

Always play A and G as a bare chord because that is the way that the man him self JOHN 
playes it.

Whats with the G# there are no sharps in this song, it`s all in A, and G. The Tab is right for the intro and the verse, but they are just A and G. Those are the only chords in the song.
