Heres the notation I have used in the tab.  I hope you can follow
it OK, I think its quite clear, unlike some of the notations used
in other tabs at this archive.

\	Slide down
/	Slide up
~	Vibrato
5b(7)	Bend note to pitch in brackets
h	Hammer on
p	pull off
Ph	Pinched Harmonic
co	Cut off note
MU	Mute the strings by lightly resting your right hand on them


Intro/ main riff (Play twice)                     (end riff)

<Play Section A>
<Repeat 1st verse>
<turnaround>
<Repeat 1st verse - but repeat the A chord diagramA augmentedA and A chord diagramBB chords so the progression is thus>

			^	   ^ Stop playing
			| Turnaround would occur here

  Gary repeats the lyrics "I just want, to be you lovin'" over A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramBB chords
  before he finishes "To be your lovin' man" which would be over the A chord diagramBB chord
  if the band had continued playing.  Finalally he finishes with a lick in A chord diagramE MajorE
  around the 12th fret.



NOTE:	I've kind of rushed this tab towards the end, so as I could submit it
	to the archive before I take up my placement and won't have internet
	access for 11 months.  Anyroad I think there is enough tab to play
	with but please feel free to finish, add ,correct or re-arrange this
	file. As always listening the recorded version will help you to learn
	the song.  Good luck.
