LAST TWO CHORDS:  A  G (with toggle switch)

-----------------------------------------
VERSES: Behind the strumming acoustic there is an electric:
            G                           C             Am C G
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then another guitar joins and they play two different melodies:

        B-----------------17B17-15-14-12---|
        G-------------------------------14-|
        D----------------------------------|
        A----------------------------------|
        E----------------------------------|

PRE 2nc CHORUS: Just before the second chorus there is a little subtle
background lick just after the words 'touch me':
          G
        E-330--------------|
        B----30------------|
        G------4P2P0-4P2P0-|
        D------------------|
        A------------------|
        E------------------|

LAST 2 CHORDS: The last two chords of the song are 'A' to 'G'. The effect at the end is
achieved by using a Les Paul style guitar and turning the top volume, for the neck
pickup, off and then whilst holding the G flicking the toggle switch quickly. It helps
if you stand next to a loud amp aswell, because then you get the feedback starting to
creep in!!!
