This version is taken from the LIVE performance - LIVE AT UCLA:
http://youtu.be/0Gusq4eiV3M

This is the version that is played on PBS television when they show the John Sebastion Folk Rewind (MY MUSIC) show.

Some chords that Trini uses are formed differently then the way they are usually formed... I included how he forms those chords... It is the G and A chord that is used in the INTRO and elsewhere in the song... Using the "normal" version of these chords is also acceptable... However, I know that some people who watch the video get hung up on playing the chords exactly the way he plays it would want to know how he forms the chord.....
