How To Play

Capo: 5th fret

Note: The heart and soul of this song is the moving bass line notated by the "slash" chords (ie. A/G, etc.).
With slash chords, the letter before slash is the chord, and the letter after the slash is the bass note.
Novice players can ignore the bass notes and just play the chords. If so, you might want to transpose this
chart to a different key.
