                  timesign.       Let this C-chord ring over
                    2/4               these two bars.



Backing for the four bars between intro and first verse:

D|7-7-9-9-7---9---|7---7-7-9---9-9-7---7-7-9---9---| Take a look at  
A|5-5-5-5-5---5---|5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5---| the countbar.
E|----------------|--------------------------------| You can also
                       * *     * *     * *           listen to the
                                                     hi-hat for the
                                                     rhythm.

Repeat the whole thing to complete the
verse. The second time replace the last
bar by:

  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  
E|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|----------------|
D|7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
A|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
E|----------------|

Or (for the other guitar) by:

  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 
E|--------10------|  As far as I can hear, the two guitars are
B|----10----------|  playing the same backing during the verse.
G|11--------------|  The only difference is this last bar.
