Instrumental

Play the intro riff again. There's a harmonic pumping out behind it
this time. This can be found by lightly touching the 3rd (G) string
directly above the 5th fret - don't press down, but play the string
and it should ring. It may need a bit of distortion to bring it out.

Then the guitar solo starts. I think it's played with a slide, but
if you don't have one or an empty pint-glass to hand, it sounds
alright by just fretting the notes with your fingers and add plenty
of vibrato.

Over the last 3 bars of the solo a louder, more prominent overdub
is played. It goes a little something like this:

Verse 3

A                  Dsus2/A	   A            Dsus2/A
What do you care about? She says, 'this and that,'
	  A            Dsus2/A		    A
What do I mean to you? I'll show you if you want the truth.
F#m		E			   D
I threw it all away, I don't know where I put it,
D			C5
But I miss it just the same.  (Repeat Fill Ad Lib)

Bridge
    Bm
How many eyes must a young girl have?
          E
I know she makes you cry, I know she makes you laugh,
       F#
I'd be good to you, if I could I'd make you happy,
G
If I had a son I'd be good to my Daddy,
    Bm
Who loves you but I bet it's not the same
   E     G
as your, North Country Boy.

Outro

A weird chord starts playing, I think it's C#7b5 but you play it
like this:

E|--7--|	This is played a few times with that
B|--8--|	Fret five harmonic repeating.
G|--6--|	Finally the original intro riff comes
D|-----|	back in, plus ad lib vocals and
A|-----|	the song fades out.
E|-----|
