This is a cover of Bruce Cockburn's song.  A harder song
to find, but it appears on "Disc One: All Their Greatest Hits".
I've seen basic transcriptions for this song, but
nothing as complete as what follows.

Here are the basics of the song.  As always, listen to
the song to understand and hear exactly what is going on.
The transcription may not be exact, but I think it's pretty close.

LEGEND: [Chorus] means "Chorus" is being defined
        (Chorus) means to play the already defined "Chorus"
        {} are used to specify remarks
