Okay, here is, probably, the closest thing to 100% accurate.  I've heard and
played this song so many times, I could probably play it with my eyes closed.
This is probably one of the best songs, if not the best, Jon and Richie have
written.  There's a lot of really cool guitar interludes in the verses.  However,
because of these interludes, so you may avoid confusion, I will have to identify
every time, verses and interludes.  Listen to the song for the timing.  Have fun!
