                                             Tabbed by Howard Wright

                                             spxhaw@uk.ac.cf.thor


INTRO:

VERSE 1:
--------

It's impossible to get both the piano stuff and the guitar stuff into one guitar
part - and both are important to get the feel of the song, so I've tabbed them
separately.

It's only for the first few lines of each verse that it causes a problem - anyway
for these lines I'll do the piano bit on one line of tab (above the words), and
the guitar riff that goes with it below the words.

 / = slide up
