Chorus

There's a lot of tab in this one

There's a little riff in the verse played throughout the song.

|-2-2-2-2---0-------------|-2------1/2----2----------|

|-3-3-3-3---2-------------|-3------2/3----3----------|

|---------------4--2----2-|-2------1/2----2----------| Riff 1

|-----------------------4-|------------------0-3-4-0-|

|-------------------------|--------------------------|

|-------------------------|--------------------------|

|-2-2-2-2---0-------------|-----------------------|

|-3-3-3-3---2-------------|-----------------------|

|----------------4--2---4-|-----------------------| Riff 2

|-----------------------4-|---------------0-3-2-0-|

|-------------------------|-----------------------|

The "Oh my darling........." part goes like this

|-10-10-10--8-|------------------|----|

|-------------|-12-12-12-10------|----|

|-------------|-------------11-9-|----|

|-------------|------------------|-12-|

|-------------|------------------|----|

|-------------|------------------|----|

There's a part in the chorus right after the A7 chord, that

goes like this

|-------------------|

|-----------7---5---|

|-6--6h7p6--------7-|

|-------------------|

|-------------------|

|-------------------|

That's it, I think. Please let me know if you have any

suggestions. I need a lot of help on this one.
