If you look at the Baritone part, most of it can be played on normal
guitars if some chords are played in a higher position. Its a great
song, so please rate or comment so I can do the best job on it.

Verse 3 - Play Verse Again

Dave:
"All you people are the skewers of our dreams
Like the cat that collared me"

Boyd (violin player):
"Oh, what I gotta say to you
 You got love
 Don’t turn it down
 Turn it loud
 Let it build
 We got a long way to go
 But you, ya gotta start somewhere"

Dave:
"Go door to door, spread the love you got
 You got the love, You get what you want.
 Does it matter where you get it from?
 I for one don’t turn my cheek for anyone
 Unturn your cheek to give your love
 Love to grow"
