Guitar tabs with lyrics



I've seen one or two versions of this song on the net already, but none
of them seemed to be complete. Well this one isn't either (who am I to

break a trend ), but it does contain slightly more than most versions.
I don't think it's 100% correct (in fact I think it's downright dodgy),
so let me know if you have any additions or corrections.

This is the chorus riff; the last time you play this (the fourth time in
the second chorus), don't play the "scale" - hold the A chord diagramGbGb for an extra
moment and then go on to Riff H.

correct -let me know what you think.
