*This is the older acoustic version of this song, i know they changed the lyrics. I put
in the new lyrics, but if you like the old lyrics, feel free to sing them :) another
thing is you can add or take away how many times you play the chords. I know when Jon 
does it solo, sometimes he uses the single E string ( 7...10...3....0) instead of all three.
Enjoy and feel free to corrector comment. *mute higher strings

**Drop D tuning

you can still play the strings. put your guitar in drop d and play the top 3 strings. you have to mute the lower strings with your hand. I promise it is not that hard, I know youtube has a lot of really helpful videos :)
