** NOTE **
This version augments the TAB work of Michael Hanson by giving a complete
transcription of the song with the chords and fingerings notated from the
capo (at the 4th fret) as opposed to the nut. The chords are slightly
different from Michael Smith's chord transcription, but the lyric is
exactly the same. My work was done independently, and is humbly submitted
to improve on what is already in existence in this suberb archive. Enjoy!

This key to this song is getting the back-and-forth bass lines, and
following the tempo (which I have done my best to designate). I would
recommend using a flat pick and -- in general -- let it ring! Give a
listen to the CD (which I would highly recommend if you don't already have
it). This will help with the vocal line as it changes from chromatic keys
like G to F# and back -- really, this is what makes the song sound so cool.
Have fun! I welcome any comments or corrections:
