Note:  This is my first time writing a tab for a website.  Please be gentle!  I've
out the intro and the basic chords, with some filler thrown in, but I recommend playing
with the strum patterns.  Strumming the entire chord is great if you're playing on an 
but arpeggiating the top 3 strings with an occasional bass note on an electric is more
going on in the original recording and many live versions.

Intro/Chorus:
e|---------0-----------0--------------0----0----0----0--0--------|
B|--1-1-1---3----3--3----3--3--1-1-1---3----3----3-------3-------|
G|--0-0-0------2-----2----2----0-0-0-----2---2----2---2---2------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse (Play this twice):
       C                         Em                      Gm                         F
e|--------0---0----------0---0----3--3--3--------1--1--1---1--------|
B|--1--1---1-------0--0---0-------3--3----3------1--1-------1-------|
G|--0--0----0------0--0----0------3--3------3----2--2---2----2------|
D|--2--2-----------2--2-----------5--5------5----3--3---------------|
A|--3--3-----------2--2-----------5--5-----------3--3---------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|
             Did you never call?                         I waited            for your call

       C                                   Gm                     F             C
e|--0--0--0------0-------3---3--------1--1----0----0----0---------------------|
B|--1--1---------1-------3---3--------1--1----1--1---1----1---1---1---1-------|
G|--0--0---------0-------3---3--------2--2----0--0----0-----------------------|
D|--2--2----0h2----------5---5--------3--3----2--2----------------------------|
A|--3--------------------5---5--------3--3----3------------------0---2---3----|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------3----------------|
       These rivers of          suggestion                   are drivin' me away

At the end of the 2nd time through, instead of the bass progression, stay on the C chord
go straight into the "Intro/Chorus" lick, this time throwing in an open 4th string D
bass filler.  Play it twice, then go to:

Before next verse (let the bass notes ring); we'll call this the "preverse":
      C
e|-----0--0-----0--0----0-0-----0-0--0-0-----0-0--------------------------|
B|-----1--1-----1--1----1-1-----1-1--1-1-----1-1--------------------------|
G|-----0--0-----0--0----0-0-----0-0--0-0-----0-0-----0---0---0------------|
D|----------0h2-------------0h2----------0h2------------------------------|
A|--3-----------------3-------------3-------------3-----0---2----3--------|
E|---------------------------------------------------3--------------------|

At the end of the next verse and chorus sequence, go into:

Bridge (play this twice):

      Am                      G               Am
e|--0----0---0----0---0-----0----0---0---0---0-------------------|
B|--1-----1----1----3--3----1-----1---1----3--3------------------|
G|--2------2----2-------0---2------2---2--------0----------------|
D|--2--2--------------------2--2---------------------------------|
A|--0-----------------------0------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

After the 2nd time, strum or arpeggiate our friend the G chord for 4 measures:

          G
e|----3----------------------------------------------------------|
B|----0----------------------------------------------------------|
G|----0----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----0----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----2----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----3----------------------------------------------------------|

Then go back into the "preverse" and into the last verse and chorus.  The end of the
is replaying over and over again until the song is over.  Hope you enjoy!
