                Well, I sat down last night and spent a good few hours with just me, my
Washburn, a pad of paper and the CD player and transcribed this mother
as best as I could.  What follows is just the intro, about 11 seconds of
the song.  The rest is very similar so faking it with a little bit of improv
should get you through the song.  The basic chord progression is Em-B-Bm-A.
The position for these chords are at the end of this message.

The entire song follows this chord progression (Em-B-Bm-A-Em) except
for the tail end of the song where the lyrics are

"I don't wanna stay.." (repeated)

which is

      __9___      __7___      __5___
      __9___      __7___      __5___
      __9___      __8___      __6___
      __7___      __9___      __7___
      __7___      __9___      __7___
      __7___      __7___      __5___

Em      B           Bm          A


The solo for this song is in D pentatonic in the 10th position.  I was too
damn lazy to figure it out AND write it down.  Maybe later!
