Intro - play Em, G FOUR times. After the third time you play them, the drums come in, then after the fourth, the bass comes in. After that you play Em, G another FOUR times before starting the verse.
VERSE 1
[Em]I   need [G]an [Em]easy friend[G]
[G]I [Em]do, with [G]an [Em]ear to lend[G]
[G]I [Em]do think [G]you [Em]fit this shoe[G]
[G]I [Em]do but [G]you [Em]have a clue[G]
CHORUS
I know these next chords are wrong but it fits in nicely. (where there is nothing written on a string, that means you don't play that string on that chord. Other people put an 'x' but I think that makes it harder to read for the less experienced people)

NOTES
In the verses, try not to just play the chords straight like they're written. Try to
elaborate a bit. You will see what I mean when listening to the song. Put an emphasis on beats 2 and 4. The Em chord should be played so that you strum it once then play the top E string then the B string like this:
Beat 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
   E---0-0--33-0-0--33-0-0--33-0-0--33---
   A---0--0-00-0--0-00-0--0-00-0--0-00---
   D---0----00-0----00-0----00-0----00---
   G---2----00-2----00-2----00-2----00---
   B---2----22-2----22-2----22-2----22---
   E---0----33-0----33-0----33-0----33---

In the solo, the bit which is played four times is played very stacato (short, sharp notes). Play it so that when you play a note, you quickly release your finger from the fretboard to mute it again. Like I said before, listen to the song whilst reading this. You will get the gist of what I'm trying to say!
