[E7#9]  
 
 E ----------------- - - -
 B -8--------------- - - -
 G -7--------------- - - - [As a true Focus purist, I think it would be
 D -6--------------- - - - blasphemous to transcribe yodelling for the
 A -7--------------- - - - guitar...so I won't]
 E ----------------- - - -

Note: Yes, the E7#9 at the end of measure 4 (and elsewhere) is the dreaded
"Hendrix" chord (as far as I can tell....either that, or I just use it
as a surrogate for distorted-guitar-chaos). The pinky slide from the
G in this chord to the F# (added sixth) at the start of the A is, at
best, a subtle effect. I think I hear it in places, others disagree.
Anyway, I like it, and it occurs naturally with my lousy (lazy) fingers.
On the A strumming in measures 1, 2, and others, pick real hard, and
shake the fretted A (D string). The out-of-tuneness this causes is very
noticable on the song. BTW, if your amp is not capable of at least 50%
total harmonic distortion, don't even bother with this song!
Key:
@ = whole note } = quarter rest
! = half note \__/ = tied notes (don't re-sound)
= quarter note ^ = hammer or pull (you figure which one)
_ = single eighth note ~ = slide (you figure which way)
_ . = dotted eighth note
_ = eighth notes
) = sixteenth note
