Tab transcription by Cortex. E-mail: ncortex.mail@gmail.com

This is how I used to play (I mixed it with Ugly Kid Joes Cats In the Cradle): 

   E  B B      C#B   A   A  F# E  F# B  D  F# E
e-----7-7--(7)h9r7-------------------------------|
B-----0-0-----------10--10--7-----7--------7-----|
G--9---------------------------9--------7-----9--|
D------------------------------------9-----------|
A------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------|

   E  D  B  Bb A   G  E  D   F# E
e----------------------------------|
B----------------------------------|
G--9--7----------------------------|
D--------9--8--7--------(7)(11)(9)-|
A-----------------10--7--5---9--7--|
E----------------------------------|

And this is the original, I think:

   E  B B  C# B  A  A  F# E  F# B  D    F# E
e--0--7-7--9--7--5--5-------------------------|
B--5--0-0--------------7--5--7-----3--5/7--5--|
G-------------------------------4-------------|
D---------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------|

   E  D  B  Bb A  G  E  D  F# E
e--0-----------------------------|
B-----3--0-----------------------|
G-----------3--2--0--------------|
D--------------------2--0--4--2--|
A--------------------------------|
E--------------------------------|

Cat Stevens never had anything to do with this song. Harry Chapin wrote it, Ugly Kid Joe covered it.
