Notes: Chords and accents (where applicable) on top, note values on bottom
       (see key below).  Use a pretty heavy chorus effect throughout.
       Intro and Refrain - use light strumming; barely hit those A chords
       at the end of the first two measures.  Let the open E chord ring.
       Verse - use pick-hand muting, but hit the highest note (B) sharply.
       The "2T" indicates that it's easiest to fret the F# with your thumb.
       The (0) indicates that the open A is used here only at the very
       beginning of each Verse.
       Chorus - use fret-hand muting by alternately releasing pressure on
       the chord.  The accents indicate when the chord sounds through (i.e.,
       when it should be fretted).

    |.  = dotted quarter note
    |   = quarter note          }    = quarter rest
    _|  = single eighth note
    |_| = eighth notes		%    = eighth rest
    |=| = sixteenth notes

    V   = big accent		v    = moderate accent
