Now repeat the verses again for verse 2, but instead of taking the chorus again, play this:

     (Repeat 3 times)

Guitar solo time!  During this part, play the first four bars of the chorus, then end with this: 

   A           F5            D5                  A           F5

D|-0-----0-----0-----0-----||
A|----0-----0-----0-----0--||
D|-------------------------||


Near the end already!  Now just go back and play verse 3, then play the chorus as written, 
but on the third repeat of the chorus play only the first three bars (don't play the 3rd ending!!)  
Instead, jump to the following and play to the end:

                              (play 3 times)
   D7                           F                          D7
