Dire Straits
Once Upon a Time in the West (1979)
(Knopfler)

From: "Communique"

Great song to play on an acoustic! The signature changes may seem a little 
tricky at first, but as they follow the vocals they're not a real problem: 
don't count, just play along with the singer.
The bass does a lot in the verses. I added a skeleton of a tab below, 
that includes the bass line wherever necessary/possible and the main 
accents for strumming along.
And here's a good tab for the lead guitar, too:

Enjoy!
