Note: This song can be played in its entirety without ever playing your high E string 
it's a good one to play if you broke it ;) The only place it is played is in the final D 
so just play it at the 5th fret (x5777x) and it should sound close to perfect.

I saw this live and it was finger-picked. I was just wondering if you play it with a pick or with your fingers. Great tab, by the way.

Thanks for the ratings/comments. I always finger-pick it. It would be difficult to use a pick on this song and the CD version sounds finger-picked to me.

I've been meaning to add this for awhile, but when I submitted the tab the alignment of the chord names got off a little bit. I think it's still pretty obvious which chords go where though.

Nice work on the tab. I like how you strive for perfection, and it turned out really nice, and sounds like like the CD, even differences from one chorus to the next, etc.

It'd be nice if you'd add words (even at the end is ok), or something, cuz I'm lazy and don't like to look them up ;-)

And I agree with no pick... I don't ever use a pick, I don't believe in 'em.

Thanks for the good work, keep it up!
