         D          D   G/B    A7       D
  I'm a-layin down easy in my time of dying.


I've watched them play this in person and on video and I went back and forth on the last 
e string, whether it's dropped to D or not.  Try it both ways and see what you like.  If you leave
the high e string on E, play D normally and G as 550003.

On different videos Andrew seems to vary during the verses, after the G/B, where he either plays
G or A7.  I wrote it this way for consistency.

He does so much that I can't notate everything.  On the G/B he usually plucks the open A string
then hammers on B.  On the last "A" before the instrumental, try climbing from x02220 to x02230 to x02222.
When they sing "The American dream", try 000220.  In general, as with everything, try it different
ways and play what you like.  Hope this helps get you started.
