basically a descending G scale.

I did try to capture all the fills,
but they do move around a little and dammit,
I'm trying to have a freaking life, here, okay?
They pretty much are the following -- insert them where you will.

(around the choruses)

E-----------------3-7-5-3---|
B---------------------------|
G-----------------4-7-5-4---|
D---------------------------|
A---------------------------|
E---------------------------|

 1234
(around the verses)

E-------------8-8-8-8-7/5---|
B---------------------------|
G-------------9-9-9-9-7/5---|
D---------------------------|
A---------------------------|
E---------------------------|

 1234
(either - whatever)

E----------------8--7—75-----|
B----------------------------|
G----------------9--7—75-----|
D----------------------------|
A----------------------------|
E----------------------------|

 1234

And finally, the sax solo,
played by that master saxophonist David himself:
