I saw a request awhile back for this, and haven't seen a response. Here's
my try, constructive criticisms are appreciated.

Intro, same as chorus:

Verse 1:
(* For all the verses, the F's, C's, and Am's are played as barre
chords, the F's in A formation, the C's and Am's in E form. He
upstrokes them in pairs, on what sounds like a big hollowbody electric.
The placement of the chords over the words here is inteneded only to
to denote their *approximate* temporal location. Listen to the song
and you'll be able to hear and feel where they actually go.*)
