Guitar tabs with lyrics

Okay, here's the promised TAB for the Who's "Behind Blue Eyes":

	Now the arpeggio changes to strumming, the pattern of which I won't try
to notate, due to my lack of skills in transcribing on computer.  In the
beginning each chord is just a quarter note followed by another, which is tied
to a pair of eighth notes.  There are quite a few changes in this pattern so I
advise listening to the recording, which I assume is almost a given in using
TAB, anyway.
	The chords are:
	Cadd9(x32030), D(xx0232), D/F#(2x0232) (Using the thumb for the base

note is probably the easiest way, albeit classically improper way to form this
chord.) A chord diagramG+G (320003), C/G(3x2013), D/A(x00232), E(0221000), A/E(0311xx),
Bm(x24432), C(x32010), Dsus4(xx0233) and Asus2(x02200).  Many of these are the
same chords as were arpeggiated in the earlier sequence.  The chord changes in
this pattern go: Cadd9, D, D/F, G, C/G, G, Cadd9, D, D/A, E, A/E, E, Bm, C, D,
A, D, Dsus4, D, Asus2.  Again, listen to the recording, as some of these are
strummed for several measures, while others are merely quick changes lasting a
quarter note.
	Now, it returns to the arpeggiated sequence, with "No one knows what
it's like, to feel these feelings.  Skip the first couple bars of the intro and
begin on the Em.  The pattern is nearly identical to the first time played, but

note the changes between the arpeggiation each time the A chord diagramDsus4Dsus4 chord comes
around.  After playing the arpeggio a couple times go back to the chord
strumming bit, and then to the break, which is in double time:
           hold bend|------|release bend

e---------------------------	Now, the bridge with the guitar playing chords
B--T----12-12-12------------in this order: E5, Bm, A, E, Bm, G, D, Bm, A, D,
G--A-----9--9--9-----9------Bm, A, E, Bm, A, E5, B5, A5, E5, Bm, G, D, Bm, A,
D--B--11----------11-9---9\-D, Bm, A, G, E5, Bm, A, E5, Bm, A, B, A, G, D, B,
A---------------------------A, G, D, B, A, G, D, E... and then into an arpeggio
E--------------------------0of a B/A (x0444x), and then back to the main
pattern to close.  During the brige there is a second guitar playing the solo,
which I promise to include tomorrow, I haven't time tonight.
