TAB by: Robb Anagnostis
Date: Fri, 15 Nov 2002

The existing TABs are close but some miss the timing, others leave out notes.
The TAB by Douglas French from 1995 (which this tab is greatly based on) is very good but misses the very important chromatic bass line through the verses (only 3 notes...but important). Others that have the bass line show a really wierd fingering for it. Try this one out. It's really pretty easy. Check out measure #5 where the chromatic bass notes all stay on the A string.
