Note: I'm not very good at naming chords so they may not all be right but this is the fingering
that I use.  If something doesn't sound right please let me know because I was sorta in a hurry
when I was tabbing this and I might have (probably did) made a mistake.  Also please submit any 
corrections to the above email address.  I also noted where he does the Bridge that it's not 
how he does it but it sounds okay.  I play farther down (or is it up, anyway closer to the body)
on the neck than he does, but if anyone can figure out what he's playing please let me know.  I 
know this because I saw him on the Live Adventure Video playing this song, but I can't tell which
chords he's using.  Anyway enjoy it and God bless.
