JUST A SONG BEFORE I GO- Crosby, Stills and Nash

Capo on 2nd fret

 Em           Bm
Just a song before I go
     C           Am
To whom it may concern
  Em                   Bm
Travelling twice the speed of sound
       C          Am
It's easy to get burned

  G                  F
When the shows were all over
    Am              Bm
We had to get back home
     G              F
And when we opened up the door
         Am          RIFF
I had to be alone

She helped me with my suitcase
She stands before my eyes
Driving me to the airport
And to the friendly skies

Going through security
I held her for so long
She finally looked at me in love
And she was gone


RIFF 1 (roughly):
E -----------------------------|
B --0h1-----0-----1-----/3-----|
G ------0-----0-----0------0---|
D --0h2-----0---0-2---2-/4---4-|
A --------0--------------------|
E -----------------------------|

E ------------------------------------|
B ---1---3---5---7---8----10----12----|
G --0---0---0---0---0----0-----0------|
D -2---4---5---7---9---10----12-------|
A ------------------------------------|
E ------------------------------------|

NOTE: I'm note quite sure on the first riff, but the second riff is
pretty accurate, I think.

Pretty close, but I'm pretty sure that's a Cmaj7 and an Edim2 in place of the C and Am. If you listen to the recording, you should be able to hear the open B string in most, if not all the chords. Also, the song should be up 2 1/2 steps.

Actually, the correct chords with the capo are:
| Em - Bm7 - C - Am7 |
| G - F - Am7 - Bm7 |
I play it with out the capo and use these transposed chords:
| F#m7 - C#m7 - D - Bm7 |
| A - G - Bm7 - C#m7 |
The minor 7's are played like this:
