About this tab version
From the 1964 studio recording. Can be paired with any guitar version in Am Capo 6 ( E-flat Major). Verse 2 should be very close to the original. I copied it into the other verses with slight adjustments. Hopefully I'll get back to further direct transcription in the later verses soon. Was this info helpful? Yes No
