I made some corrections to the original version - TBezza

Tuning - Standard, Capo at 3rd fret

   D  D/G Bm   G F#m  Bm/A  A   Dsus2 Dsus4

Intro - Hammer on and pull off on the e string of the D chord, changing in 
between D, Dsus2 and Dsus4. Listen to song for perfect timings.

D			D/G
i am a lonely visitor, came to late to cause a stir
	  D		    Bm		      G
though i campaigned all my life towards that goal
   G		     F#m		Bm
i hardly slept the night you wept, our secrets safe
and still well-kept
	A			  Bm
where even richard nixon has got soul
G			    A

Bass Riff
chords played a few times each, listen to song for timings.

OK, a few things here - been playing this tune for years.

The second chord in the intro is a Gmaj7 - play the D note on the 3rd fret, 2nd string as well as an F# on 1st string, 2 fret - curl your thumb over the top to play the G bass note on the sixth string. As suggested, listen to the song and you'll hear Neil lift his finger off the first string in this chord as well, giving it that great melody.

During the verses Neil does not play a D/G - try a regular G chord and then change to Gmaj7th - again, listen to tune - you'll hear him make that change.

Also, rather than an F#minor play a F#7. You'll hear the difference! And then you're good to go.

Great song - one of my favorite tunes by Neil Young!
