Solo on verse

Verse 2 (chords as above - sorry don't have the words to hand)


Chorus (as above)
--

Chord note for for beginners:
All chords played as normally given in any book in standard tuning in 1st
position (ie at the bottom of the neck - which is physically the top if you're
holding the neck upwards!). Note that Roy plays A chord diagramG+G with 4 fingers - fingering
A chord diagramD MajorD on the A chord diagramBB string, which makes the chord sound nicer (you dont get the jump
from A chord diagramBB up to A chord diagramG+G for the top two strings - if any notes are to be missed
out of a chord, better to miss the 3rd(A chord diagramBB) than the 5th(A chord diagramD MajorD) in general)
i.e.:

        ............playing A chord diagramD MajorD instead of open A chord diagramBB
