  I recieved a request for this the other day.  I just finished
tabbing it out today, and thought that I might share it with everyone.
This is definitely not "THE CORRECT" version, but I think it is close.
Enjoy...

That should get you through the whole thing.  I'm sure there are
some leads missing somewhere, and my solos probably leave a little
to be desired, but it is close enough for me.

Comments, corrections, additions, questions, etc. are always welcome.
