As i have said, some bits vary and i havent quite had time yet
to sit down and figure them all out. Improvising should work
just fine though, John would have been when he recorded the song.

"It doesnt got to be this way" bit:

E|--------------------|-------------------------------------|
C|--------------------|-------------------------------------|
G|-8------------------|-5-----------------------------------|
C|-8------------------|-5-----------------------------------|
G|-x------------------|-5-----------------------------------|
C|-8------------------|-5-----------------------------------|
   ^
   not sure about this
   it sounds ok on my 12 string
   but kinda crappy on my 6.

"I be up sometimes, down sometimes" bit:

E|------------------------|
C|------------------------|
G|------------------------|
C|-0-0---3-3---10-10--5-5-|
G|-0-0---3-3---10-10--5-5-|
C|-0-0---3-3---10-10--5-5-|

solo: havent quite got to it. I have most parts worked out
but tabbing it it pure hell. Again, improvising would probably
do just fine.
