*G (barre) is downstrummed 6 to 8 times before chorus


(Chorus repeats then into solo at end of chorus)


Solo:
(Note: There is obviously an easier way to play
       the end of this. However, I find that playing
       it the way that I have tabbed sounds better)

After solo:
(Chorus repeats once without guitar until):

                                       G
We can come together, the light is our way

(G is downstrummed 6 to 8 times, then second half of chorus repeats with guitar)
(Chorus is then repeated again with different lyrics (get ready x4) and variation to 
part):
