 E      E7       E F F#
 to another shore

 we can laugh our lives away
        Dsus2  D       Dsus2  D
 and be free once more
 Dsus2  D          Dsus2  D
 no one heard them calling

 cause they were too busy watching
   G6      Dsus2 D        D5  Dsus4  D ('end of verse'
 those old raindrops fall                  chords)

  (next, play pre-solo riff 1x, and then play D-Bb-D-Bb-A chords
   during 1st solo...)

  (...now go back and sing/play 1st eight lines of verse (up to
   and including "and be free once more" line...))

  (..finally, sing/play chorus again 2x, and then just play
     chorus chords as 2nd solo fades out)
