Original Chords by Spence

Modified chords by Altiego

I saw the chords given for this song, and they didn't seem have the right "Feel" of the,
the A chord. I just modified the chords to sound better, whether or not it's anything
the orginal i don't know but it sounds better when played acoustic.
I also added the intro
Standard Tuning
**=unusual chords
(2) or (3) = A optional fingering ie. xxx(0)23 can be either xxxx23 or xxx023. It
depends on musician's preference.
