This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since
U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings.
This song has a higher difficulty level due to the chords used.
I have attempted to keep the voicings as simple as possible,
while still maintaining the tone and flavor of the song.
