Fake plastic trees

Okay, this is pretty accurate, I took the chords
that Gene listed and put them to the lyrics, figuring
out the exact changes and the strumming pattern. It
sounds almost perfect when I play along to my CD and
it works well enough.
Corrections? e-mail: glennrub@delphi.com
Strumming pattern:
e---------------------- (only strum for the D chord)
B----------x-----------
G----------x-----------
D---x-x----x-----------
A---x-x----x----------- (for the D chord, don't play this string...)
E--don't play----------

(4 of the above strums equals what you should play for
each chord when it changes)
(on the D/A/D change play 2 strums D, then 2 strums A, then 4 strums D)
Start strumming A for the intro, come in with
the lyrics on the second strum of the pattern)
