So there are a few easy walks on the bass note that are semi-important and the piano
does them in the real song. When I show them I'll only show the relevant strings. Like for
the first run I only show the A and the D strings but it really means:

e-----------|
B-----------|
G-----------|
D--------1--|
A--2--4-----|
E-----------|

Pay close attention to what these chords are called and their voicings. Don't use the
ones that chord books suggest, use these:

Eadd9   Etype2    *A*     Amaj7   A6      A/C#
e--2    e--4      e--0    e--4    e--2    e--0-|
B--0    B--0      B--4    B--2    B--2    B--2-|
G--1    G--1      G--2    G--2    G--2    G--2-|
D--2    D--2      D--2    D--2    D--2    D--2-|
A--2    A--2      A--0    A--0    A--0    A--4-|
E--0    E--0      E--0    E--0    E--0    E--0-|


When those A chords are melting away at the ends of some of those lines (led me to
today...), you'll see that my Amaj7 and my *A* will be part of an easy line that should just
move your pinkie down a note at a time and keep the meat of the A chord intact. Like 
this or something similar:

   A6   A   *A*   A
e--2----0----0----0-|
B--2----2----4----2-|
G--2----2----2----2-|
D--2----2----2----2-|
A--0----0----0----0-|
E--0----0----0----0-|


Intro:
E  A  F#m  B

        D--------1--|
        A--2--4-----|

E  A  F#m  B


       E                A             F#m                  B
In the holding tank I built for myself, it's feeding time
      E             A                     F#m                   B
And I start to feel afraid 'cause I'm the last one left in line
    F#m               E                   D                A6 A *A* A/C#
The endless string of summer storms that led me to today
E                                 A       B      E
Began one afternoon with you long ago and far away

    C#m      A         E              Amaj7    A6   A  *A*
And someone leads the beast in on its chain
      E                                       B              A A6 Amaj7
But I know you're thinking of me 'cause it's just about to rain
      E                 A       B    Eadd9
So I wont be afraid of anything ever again


E  A  F#m  B

       A--2--4--2|

E  A  F#m  B


       E                  A         F#m                B
In the cell that holds my body back, the door swings wide
      E                  A                  F#m               B
And I feel like someone's lost child as the guards lead me outside
    F#m               E               D                      A6   A   Amaj7
And if the clouds are gathering, it's just to point the way
      E                         A        B             E
To an afternoon I spent with you when it rained all day



    C#m      A         E               A/C#   *A*    A
And someone leads the beast in on its chain
      E                                      B             A A/C# *A* A/C#
But I know you're thinking of me 'cause it's just about to rain
      E                A        B    Eadd9  Etype2
So I wont be afraid of anything ever again

UGH I can't believe the website screwed this up!
The A's that seem to be floating out in nowhere go at the end of the line above them. Whenever they are being played there are NO vocals even though it looks like they go over lyrics.
