Verse (open strings under the C power chord for that nice jangle):

Figure A: 

"I'll be grazing by your window... Please come pat me on the head"

______________________ Chorus: *Make sure to mute the bass E with your thumb on the D5 chord!* If you can't get your little finger over to the 5th fret, you can play the treble e open. (but it doesn't sound as good). "In a jar where you keep me...all I could do was lick your hand" "In a jar the scars are plain to see...I hope somehow you'll know I understand"

Solo: Here's an approximation of the solo c/o oldskool11221 + Sam Duckitt from freesofree.net. Or improvise some minor pentatonic, 'blues scale' patterns instead. Mash that whammy bar.
