Transcribed from the Kathy Mccarty version for the guitar.

I learnt this some years ago after hearing it on 'Before Sunrise' while I was learning 
play guitar.

Intro: Note hit the A short and sharp, dont let it ring. Listen to the recording to 
what im saying.

D            A

Well it just goes to show

       E                   G    A      E

Though people say were an    unlikely couple

           A       E

I'm seein' double

   A

Of you


Chourus: This bit alternates rapidly a lot between the G and D chords, listen to the 
to get the exact feel

(Strum lightly at first then build out towards the end before dropping onto the A and 
E to take you back into the verse)

G    D    G    D    G      D    G    D     G        D         G     D

Ohhh                This is life           And everythings alright


G             A             G        D (on the record the guitarist rapidly
                                               Changes between the G, A and
Livin' livin' livin' livin' livin'   Life    maybe E and D chords.. too fast
                                             for me to pick out so play
                                              around here)
Verse:


D   A

Oh hope for the hopeless

    E                         G           A   E
I'm learning to cope with the emotionless mediocracy

   A    E              A

Oh ho,   day to day living   D|----------0---|
                             A|--0--0h2------|
                             E|--------------|

D          A                          E

 How can I help but be restless when

     G               A             E

Everything seems so tasteless and

            A                     E

All of the colours seem to have

      A

Faded away


Chorus: As above

Outro: Just finish up there or you can repeat the intro again and dont forget to let the 
note ring and say......'Life!'


Enjoy, this was my first tab and even something as simple as this takes time. I now 
all the crazy guys out there
who interpret entire bridges and legnthy hendrix solos! Hats off to you!
