--------------------------------TABLATURE NOTES--------------------------------

The "X" noted "chords" are actually played by a percussion instrument in the
recording. To play those notes on the guitar, bar the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd frets
as illustrated and don't press down to make the percussive sound.

The Cm7 chords marked by three asterisks (***) are up-strokes.

The F(major) chords should be struck quickly but the ring should be palm-muted
(all except the last F(major) on each measure, which should slide down a bit).

Except for the two chords, Cm7 and F(major), the rest of the music in this song
actually do not contain guitars. The guitar notes were adapted from the other
instruments in the song. Once you play this song with a guitar, you should find
