*Notes/Notation*
X: the string is either muted or not played.
0: the string is played open.

*The A chord during the second verse is played on the “go” part of the word “ago”; 
I added a dash to illustrate that.* 

*I am firmly rooted in omitting the B in the G chord, playing it as a 3X0033 
rather than 320033, but either way will work.*

*The Bm chord is difficult for first timers–and even senior guitar players to some 
degree–but just try it in barre form, and if that doesn’t work, see if doing 
XX4432 works better.*
