                Tried to give you consolation,
                Dm       C#        D#      F
                Your old man won't let you down
                Gm     C        F                Bb

                Gm         C                  F
                Turned the whole world upside down



        
                CHORUS

/  =  slide
h  =  hammer on
p  =  pull off
b  =  bend note
r  =  release bend
~  =  vibrato
*  =  repeat the part played by guitar two in the background
I play the hammer on/ pull off with my ring finger but it is easier
if you use your pinky
