Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman comes

either way you play it, it's a G.. but it sounds like a fretted note, so it's better if you use the 5th fret on the D string

The part in rhythm fill 2 where the chords are F#5, G5, F#5.... it doesn't sound right.. i think the first F#5 is supposed to be a G#5.. but this looks like it's from a tab book, so i'm probably wrong
