This next part, the rhythm just plays that simple blues line and the lead does a simple 
shown below.

e |-12-12-12\-5-5-5-| You can figure out how that is played by listening to
B |-12-12-12\-5-5-5-| the song. I use a mix of sharp upstrokes and down-
G |-----------------| strokes.
D |-----------------|
A |-----------------|
E |-----------------|

e |------12----12-------5---5------------------| I end the song by going crazy with this for
B |----12----12--------5---5-------------------| a while, then ending it with this.
G |-14^----14^---14^-7^--7^--7^----------------|
D |-----------------------------| e |----------|
A |-----------------------------| B |-12-------|
E |-----------------------------| G |-14^(16)--|

Well, there it is. Have fun.
