All chord and times are approximations.  This song is supposed to be in drop D tuning
(DGCFAd).  I tuned the song to standard tuning (don't like switching back and forth
too much).  This sounds pretty close to the song.  If you don't like it, just play the
chords 1 step higher (F = G; A# = C and so on) on drop D.  Solo is the same way (5=7).
I didn't quite get all the riffs in the verses.  They change many times.  I'll work on
that later.  This is a beautiful song (my favorite VU song).  It is not too difficult
either.  Enjoy it.
