Partly a correction, partly an addition or tip. I'm pretty sure the bridge part (look around) is played with G/A and D/A, and that these are played with the Dm7 form at the third and fifth frets (open 4th, but no 5th or 6th strings). Hope this helps.

pretty good job, this is a tough song to play correctly... your tab is VERY close, but when you play it a certain way it just sounds a little better

---------------
1. this is easier to play in drop D (which is how it was written)

---------------
2. the verse is

D D/C G7M Gm7M
dear prudence
D D/C G7M Gm7M
won't you come out to play

and so on...

---------------
3. the bridge is
D G/D5 A/D5 G/D5
look around 'round...

---------------
chords as follows (remember drop D):

D: 000232
D/C: 030232
G7M: 020032
Gm7M: 010032

G/D5: 000433
A/D5: 000655
