I took v1 of this tab and did major surgery on it so it matches what's actually being
played in the recording by The Vapors. I have mostly opted against open strings, both 
for better tone and better fretboard positioning, except when distance makes it more
practical to play the open string. Use whatever fingering you are most comfortable
with, but these are the notes.

Beautiful.

It's funny though, I came here to quickly re-learn this song after having played it years ago in a cover band. All this time, I never realized the last verse had a different bass line to it. Thanks for making me realize that!

Weird layout with all the verses, and then all choruses. But thanks!
