  Bird is waiting, expectating
Cm                 D

That's all the main parts of the song. The rest has the harmonica being more prominent
than the guitar, and repeats parts already tabbed here on guitar.

If you want to improvise during the Em, Dm, Cm, D progression you should play an E minor pentatonic
during the E minor, D minor pentatonic during the Dm, Cm pentatonic during Cm (I mean this is all
obvious really), and then that funky riff during the D. Have fun with it.
