			               4 + 20

     Notes:

     In a video I saw Stills play this using just his thumb and index finger;
     with the thumb striking the 4th and 6th strings and the index finger
     everywhere else.

     Structure of the tune:

	1 - Intro
	2 - Verse
	Repeat 1
	Repeat 2
	Repeat 1
	Repeat 2

     I have tried to be as accurate as possible with respect to the rhythm bars
     (the notes between the bars being struck on the up beat), no guarantees.

     Two variations of <4> are:

	|--------4--------------|	|--------------4-----------|
	|--2--0--------5--------|	|--2--0--5--0-----5--------|
   <4>  |--------------------0--|	|-----------------------0--|
	|-----------------0-----|	|--------------------------|
	|-----------------------|	|--------------------------|
	|--0--------0-----------|	|--0-----------0-----0-----|
	   |__|_____|_____|		   |_____|_____|_____|


Have fun,

Ben

		 \______/ (4 beats)

	       |E<1>			    |<2>
		Four and twenty years ago, I come into this life,
		       |<3>		    |<4>
		    the son of a woman and a man who lived in strife.
		      |G<5> <6>	     |A<7>
		He was tired of bein' poor,
			  |G<5>	       <6>	      |A<7>
		    and he wasn't into sellin' door to door,
			  |G<5>		   <6>	      |A<7> |<8>
		    and he worked like the devil to be more.

		A different kind of poverty now upsets me so;
		    night after sleepless night, I walk the floor and I want to know,
		    why am I so alone?
		Where is my woman, can I bring her home?
		Have I driven her away?  Is she gone?

		Morning comes the sunrise and I'm driven to my bed.
		I see it is empty and there's devils in my head.
		I embrace the many-colored beast.
		I grow weary of the torment can there be no peace?
		And I find myself just wishing that my life would simply cease.
