Guitar tabs with lyrics

Tab maker: Jake
Standard Tuning (eBGDAE)

This is my first tab. I think its pretty close. Hope this helps. I know thi is the only
tab for this song but if there's anything that doesnt sound right let me know. You'll
see a letter in parentheses that letter tells you what part it is. look at the
bottom then you'll see what i mean.
