NOTE: If anything seems unclear (i.e. rhythm, tempo, etc.) just listen to the song - it
should be fairly self-explanatory.  The addition of "Bm7" in the song is based less on
the actual recording and more according to what would sound interesting if, for instance,
the only instrument played were an acoustic guitar - it's more or less "inferred," so to
speak.  Great song.
