Ok,i tabbed this as best as i could, from my live jacksonville disc.I figure
why try to reproduce the studio version, just get Ed doing it live and play
it like that.The whole thing isn't here, just everything before the verses
start.The verses are just D,G and A anywayz, but ill finish it someday.
