About this tab version
I wrote in the instrumental part in the middle, which is not included in the studio recording and the lyrics are slightly different too. I also marked bars between measures to facilitate frasing, which varies alot over the song. Was this info helpful? Yes No

SOME COMMENTS:

The lyrics on the first line of Verse 3 were checked from the original 
studio recording. 

For the Am/C and Bdim7/D listen to the bass line.

An easy way to do the Bdim7 is x2010x. It's basically E7 without the 
E-notes, givin room for someone else to play the F-note.
