Here's the rendition of the song as played on the ACL show last year, and it
follows Shawn's guitar style very closely.  Luckily,
I taped it and the camera man was nice enough to focus on her left hand
for much of the set.  Please excuse my chord names, as I have little knowledge
of musical theory or chord nomenclature.

     ^ (hammer on)


Notes:  1) The D* chord is questionable.
        2) C1 is a hammer on 3rd fret, fifth string, and C2 is a hammer
           on 2nd fret, same string.
