Mr. Soul  Buffalo Springfield

This is the way I played it.
Mr. Soul by Neil Young
recorded by Buffalo Springfield
The main riff on the E is as follows:
q q e e e q e q e e e e
 
 --------------------------------------------------------
 --------------------------------------------------------
 --------------------------------------------------------
 -2---2---2-2-4-5--4-5--4-5-4-5--------------------------
 -2---2---2-2-4-5--4-5--4-5-4-5--------------------------
 -0---0---0-0-0-0--0-0--0-0-0-0--------------------------

When it switches to A play:
 
 ----------------------------------------
 ----------------------------------------
 -2---2---2-2-4-5--4-5--4-5-4-5----------
 -2---2---2-2-4-5--4-5--4-5-4-5----------
 -0---0---0-0-0-0--0-0--0-0-0-0----------
 ----------------------------------------

each of these riffs is two measures long(4/4 time sig.) and the
eighth(e) and quarter(q) notes indicate the approximate rhythm.
Now, the rest of the song....
intro: /E/E/riff on E/...
[E]Oh, hello Mr. Soul I dropped by to pick up a reason
for the thought that I caught in my head is the event of the season
Why in [A]crowds just the trace of my face could seem so [E]pleasin'
D Dsus4 D A Asus4 A E(no riff)
I'll cop out to the change, but a stranger is putting the tease on
(riff in E ...)
I was down on a frown when a messenger brought me a letter
I was raised by the praise of a fan who said I upset her
Any girl in the world could have easily known me better
She said "You're strange, but don't change;" and I let her
solo: /E/E/E/E/ (each / / is one measure of 4 beats)
[/E/E/E/E/]  
[/F/F/F/F/]  
[/A/A/A/A/]  
[/E/E/E/E/]  
[/D/A/E/E/]  
In a while will the smile on my face turn to plaster
Stick around while the clown who is sick does the trick of disaster
For the race of my head and my face is moving much faster
Is it strange I should change I don't know why don't you ask her
