This is a very easy song to play. The first part of the song is played on the 2nd, 3rd, 
4th, and 5th strings, while the latter part is played with a simple combination of two chords.

Tuning: Standard

|B---3---3---|
|G---0---2---|

           I wanna send this out to Richie Vey
           In his thrift-store corner of the world
                  His soul is my cheap laugh
     Ba-da-ba-ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-ba, as the hour grows late


"Instrumental" Part:

|e---3---3---3-3-3---3---3-3-2---2---2-2-2---2---2-2|

     Ba-da-ba-ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-ba, as the hour grows late

Fourth time around, end on the first D.

Also, if you listen closely, you can hear a gentle riff playing several times throughout 
the song (during the G, D part). Here it is:

|B------------------|
|G------------------|
|D---2-0---0--------|
|A-------------2----|
|E------------------|
