Tabbed by Fred Lidskog 

This is another one of my favorites by Oasis, truly an epic song and 
another where our lads are accompanied by a string and horn section.
There's alot of weird chords used in this song, and the chords and
fills are sort  of hard to hear (especially in the intro) because of the
string section, so keep an open mind when you see this transcription on 
paper, because if you play the song, you'll hear these chords are pretty
much the right ones.

Chords used:

	 EADGBe
Am      (x02210)
A7sus4  (x02030) or try (x05430) 
Fmaj7/A (x03210)                 
C/B   	(x2x010)		 
C	(x32010)
D       (xx0232)
E	(022100)
E7	(020100)
F	(x33211)
G	(3x0033)

Tab Key:

b = bend (7b8 means bend string at 7th fret to make approximately the note
    the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend
r = release bend
h = hammer on
s = slide (a quick slide, sounds like one note)
/ = a slide where you play the first note, THEN slide to the second
() = harmonics, lightly touch the string directly above the fret listed
     and then pick the string 

Intro:
-----

Chords used in intro:

Am/F#	(x04500)  	
Fmaj7/A (x03500)

THEN: Repeat intro chords one more time through, with the second guitar
picking notes from the chords in a kind of random pattern, but which can
basically played like this:

Verse 2
-------
I'm not saying right is wrong
It's up to us to make
The best of all the things that come our way

'Cos everything that's been has passed
The answer's in the looking glass
There's four and twenty million doors
Down life's endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud today

And then
