=============================================================
I arranged the song in Am using barre chords to match the
original chord centers:

Am: 577555
G: 355433
F: 133211
C: 332010
Bb: x13331 or 688766


While NIWS is generally played with a strum (on solo
guitar) to imitate the original sleepy sound of the Melotron,
the song can be rearranged slightly for a more delicate sound
using arpegiated chords:

  Am (barre 5):
E||---------------------------|--
B||-------5-----------5-------|--
G||-----5---5-------5---5-----|--
D||---7-------7---7-------7---|--   etc, etc
A||-------------7-------------|--
E||-5-------------------------|--
