The song is in 4/4 time.  Almost every note is an 1/8 note. When you see 0^2 it
means play the string open then quickly hammer on at the 2nd fret.  It is
called a grace note.  The hammer should fall on the beat.

        Do not save your loving speeches
        For your friends 'til they are dead;
        Do not write them on their tombstones,
        Speak them now instead.
