CHORDS

One can probably play whatever voicings one likes best, but I think the
ones I colletced here sound close to what can be heard on the recording. 
I used the regular names of the strings here because the formatting is 
not as readable in the flat key. As indicated above, the guitar must be
tuned one semi-tone down to Eb-Ab-Db-G-Bb-Eb in order to match the 
original, though.

Verses 1 and 2                  Solo, Verse 3 and coda (key change)
