Hereís the beginning riff.  Where the notes split, play the bottom notes the
first time and top notes the second time, repeat as needed.

All fingerings are relative to a capo on the first fret.

D          F#m       G*        Bm   A/C#

Even though the band doesnít really play chords, Iíve added chords that fit
because itís nice to have chords with the words.  Hereís one way you could
play the chords, putting emphasis on the high or low end of the chord to go
along with the high or low version of the riff.

Capo 1

D    F#m           G*                 Bm     A/C#

mine.       So down I fell, down into the water
D                     G*             Bm       A/C#    D

well.      She said you fool now that you know your end is

near.      You always fall for what you desire, what you fear.
 D  Dsus2
(what you fear)

I like to add a little melody to the G chord, like this, just for fun
