Ok this song uses an alternate tuning where you drop the two middle
strings to a B and an E, instead of D and G, making it EABEBe.
It also makes use of a capo on the third fret. If you dont have a bass,
Ill say that its possible to play the bass part on your fifth string,
at least when playing the chord G5. (even though it doesnt sound quite
right..) Sorry I can't include lyrics. Anyway, have fun playing!
