Because this song has a weird time signature,
I've tried to make the beats as clear as possible.
All chords are lined up with lyrics and beats as
much as is possible with this format. If there are any
suggestions on how to improve this chart, let me know!

---------------

* = first beat
// = barline
TS = time signature

It could be easy if you transpose everything half step down and use a capo on the first frest so you have Em D Bm A and G shape chords :)
