*** Ok...here is probably my last revision...i ended transcribing the lead
    myself...i got very very bored this summer :> (DK)

Standard Tuning
4/4 time (funny little two-step dance optional)

Key: % : repeat measure
     - : minor chord                
     / : a rest
     | : two of them delimit a measure
     ~ : vibrato

* The song is based on straight-eighths with a few variations.  Each line
  of lyrics is four measures.
* Tom's part is straight off the key of C  The fills may not
  match exactly, but anyone should be able to time them right.
