In loading it up, I realized I've lost the attribution to the person
who originally wrote this up; I'm sorry.

#{There is a four-note descending bass riff over the Bm and C, played
#twice in each key, but I try to keep it simple during periods when
#my hands and mouth have to move at the same time. :) }
