   I hope no one by the name of MattM steals this tab like he stole my tab for
Head South.  Plagiarists like him only show how much he must suck at guitar
since he couldn't figure it out before me.

   If anyone feels I've made a mistake, or there is something more accurate than
what I have, please let me know so I may consider a revision and I will give you
credit for it, unlike some people.

  The verse was the hardest thing for me to figure out.  I have several
ways you could play this, however, whether or not they are accurate is
a different story.  The one I felt was most accurate is in this tab.
