Transpose
Great song! The original is in Eb, if you want to play along, just tune down a 
half step. The kick-in-the-pants here is the D to Em. At the start of the verse, 
the beat is on the 3 and the 4 of the bar. The other D to Em (I've indicated by 
parentheses) the beat is on the "and 4 and" (8th notes) of the bar.
