1. Although it was their second release, the album was mischievously titled Vol. 3 by 
George Harrison. According to Jeff Lynne, "That was George's idea. He said, 'Let's confuse 
the buggers.'"
2. I've redited this TAB, as upon re-listening to the track, it's Capo'ed.  The evidence 
is in the very last two chords.

Overall good tab, thank you!

I'm not sure about the Middle 8, though. Here's my reading:

| D | E | A | A7 |
| D | B7 | E D/F# | E E6 E E6 |

D/F# 2-x-0-2-3-x
