Intro (Keyboard, played throughout song)
 e: |---12----12----12----12-------------12----12----12----12------|
 B: |-13---13----13----13----13-------13----13----13----13----13---|

Add this to play the intro like Steve Birch did live (97/98 SMFTA tour).
He plays the normal intro for a few bars and then gets into this:
 e: |---12----12----12h13p12-------------12----12----12h13p12------|
 B: |-13---13----13----------13-------13----13----13----------13---|
