This is a tab for the LIVE PERFORMANCE of the song.
There are a few versions available on youtube.

TUNING: D-A-D-E-A-d
CAPO: 8th fret

Same tuning as 'The Gardener', 'I Won't Be Found',
'Honey Won't You Let Me In' and more...
I prefer to tune my guitar to E-B-E-F#-B-E for these songs, which I find
easier to do by ear. Either way, same result.

INTRO/MIDDLE PLAY/ENDING:
This is how I play it. TMOE variates from show to show, of course.
