A-----------------3---3-------------------3---3----------------------------------|
E-3---3---3---3-------------------0---0-----------3---3---3---3------------------|

Here's where things get a bit tricky, because the tabs for these sections are very 
similar, but not quite the same. For the following lines:
(And I will never.../And you won't read.../never thought I could.../I don't know where...)

Play:

B---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3--------------------------------|
G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------------------------|
D-------------------------0---0--------------------------------------------------|
A-3---3---2---2---0---0----------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------3---3---3---3----------------------------------|

But for the lines:
(A movie queen.../And if you read between...)

Play:
