Tuning: standard

The Bass doesn't kick into this song until 0:37 when this riff is played
"If that's the way it is..."
G|-------12-10---------------12-10----14------------------------------------|
D|--------------(12)--------------------------------------------------------|
A|-10-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------7----------------------------------------------------|

After this the bass rests for the verse and comes back with the same riff for the chorus
"If that's the way it is..."
G|-------12-10---------------12-10----14------------------------------------|
D|--------------(12)--------------------------------------------------------|
A|-10-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------7----------------------------------------------------|

After this there is a mini sort of bridge
"And you didn't even notice when the sky turned blue..."
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------2-2-2-2-----------------------------2-2-2-2---|
E|--3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5--3-3-3-3-----------3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5--0-0-0-0------------|

Then there is a guitar solo played in unison with the bass

D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|10----10-12----10-12/14----9-10-9-----------------------------------------|

G|-------12-10---------------12-10----14------------------------------------|
D|--------------(12)--------------------------------------------------------|
