Guitar tabs with lyrics

This is just mostly the first verse, but it gives an idea of the
song's structure. I didn't like either one of the guitar solos so I
didn't hack at them. They're in Am, of course. I include the bass line at
some points.
   The chords are at Nevada but this elaborates further. Additions more
than welcome.
