Notes:
I decided to tab this song because I could not find an accurate interpretation. The
patterns Ive listed may seem strange because he often mutes strums, but listen to the song
youll hear the basic rhythm. A helpful hint for the strum pattern is counting the 
as you learn. The song is in 3/4 so count, 1-2-3. Feel free to e-mail me with any
corrections.

Interlude: Play the chords for the verse once. Chorus 2: The word placement may be confusing. Listen to the song to get the most timing. Note that he adds more strumming the second time he plays this chorus.
