This is a cover of The Beatles song of the same name! =)

So much for verses and choruses. The rest are pretty much the same, except that the rest of the verses hit the G chord a little sooner (at the beginning of the third line of the verse). Here's the guitar solo in the middle:
E A E-|----------------------7--7--15b(17)--15b(17)--b(17)15-------------|-|----------------------0--0----------------------------------------|-|----------------------9--9----------------------------------------|-|------------------------------------------------------------------|-|------------------------------------------------------------------|-|------------------------------------------------------------------|

Later, there's a neat riff in one of the last verses. I think it comes right after "will you won't you want me to make you" or something like that. This is a cool riff with that looonnnng slide.
-|--12--15b(17)--b(17)15--12------12----------------------------------------|-|----------------------------15------15\10-----10b(12)--b(12)10--8---------|-|-------------------------------------------9-----------------------7--9---|-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
As the song fades into the first ending, there are some nice bend releases, while the lyrics repeat "coming down fast":
-|--b(17)15------------------------------------------------------------|-|-----------b(17)15---------------------------------------------------|-|--------------------b(16)14------------------------------------------|-|-----------------------------b(14)12---------------------------------|-|--------------------------------------b(14)12------------------------|-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
