I feel a little explanation is needed to explain why I wrote 32
for that note.  The reason being is that there's a screechingly
high note just at the end there that sounds like a very high C.
There are a few ways to get this note using an octave pedal, a
whammy pedal, or you could reach above the fretboard past the
neck pickup of your guitar and hold down the string to the point
where the 32nd fret would be.  Either way it does give the same
basic effect.

That is pretty much the whole song.
Just repeat the parts as necessary.
