Note:  The chorus is just a guess cos the guitars pretty low on the
       record - it sounds okay on guitar though.  Oh, and the last
       two bars are played by the bass but if you're playing on your
       own it finishes the song off properly. Have fun.  Bye!

Great tab. Great song. Only one little comment though. The chorus ends on a "G" instead of a "D". Sounds better when you singer in any case.
