5th fret
my first posting, love this song but couldn't find it. so here it is, i think its pretty 
accurate. You gotta listen to the song to the song to get a good feel. I hate that when 
i copy this from one place to another the chords jump to different spots! whats up with that?

1 song, 1 page, everything in place - strive for it!
