Standard tuning

I like to finger pick this song, but strumming sounds pretty good too but rhythm and picking patterns will 
up to you, they?re really not too hard

It is basically this pattern throughout the entire song (be sure to emphasize the bass notes for a sound 
to the original):

|----0------0----0-----0------1-----1----1----1------3-----3------0------0------0-------1-----3-------1-----3--||----1------1----1-----1------1-----1----1----1------0-----0------0------0------1-------1-----0-------1-----0--||----0------0----2-----2------2-----2----2----2------0-----0------0------0------0-------2-----0-------2-----0--||----2------2----2-----2------3-----2----0----0------0-----0------2------2------2-------3-----0-------3-----0--||----3------2----0-----0----------------------3------2-----2------2------2------3-------------2-------------2--||-----------------------3----------------------------3-----1------0------3--------------------3-------------3--|
The synthesizer part goes like this:
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10-------------||---------------------------------------------10----12--13------------------12---13---------12p10h12--||---9---9------------------------9--------------------------10p9h10-----------------------------------||------------12---10--9--10--12------10----------------------------------12---------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Lyrics: We skipped the light fandango Turned cartwheels cross the floor I was feeling kinda sea-sick But the crowed called out for more The room was pounding harder As the ceiling flew away When we called out for another drink The waiter brought the tray Chorus: And so it was the later As the miller told his tale That her face at first just ghostly Turned a whiter shade of pale She said there is no reason When the truth is plain to see That I?ll wander through my playing cards Would not let her be One of 16 vestal virgins Who were leaving for the coast And although my eyes were open The might just as well?ve been closed Chorus That?s everything, it?s pretty simple but if you have any questions or comments, please e-mail me at nojustno@hotmail.com
