I've done the time thingies on top of each bit as 234 1234 1 instead of the usual 1234 1234 as that's the way the riffs are phrased. I hope it make sense when you're playing it :) Throughout the song, play a mixture of the first and second riffs. The harmonica comes in after every second verse. I was going to write the lyrics but I can't decipher many of them :) Any comments/corrections/suggestions welcome... :) Cheers, -- Greg O'Beirne
