Pretty simple to play. The outro may not be right 
but I'm pretty certain the rest is. Please rate.
Played in walking (finger) style. Standard tuning.

A great tab - thanks.

I think, in the chorus, the segments marked
'First 3 times' and 'Forth time'

should actually be
'First and third times' and 'Second and Forth times'.

Good job, i think the outro is right but it's easier to just play it all on the a string
