Bloody great song, this, one of their best, and the bass part has some great moments,
particularly towards the end of the first verse.
Please enjoy, i hope at least most of it's right... :-)
Any comments or whatever, please email me at errolschmidt@powerup.com.au.

on the end I like to play

G|------6---------------||
D|--------8-------------||
A|----------6---8-------||
E|------------8---------||

which is... the same, actually. but easier!

you know, playing this song, my bass always sounds extremely sharp.
maybe the tuning is different?
don't gimme that look; i'm not tonedeaf.

Actually, I've always wondered why the bass is tuned so sharp in this song...And why no one noticed it.
