Corrections and re-formatting by: El Guapo - January 2002

This is my revision based on an earlier tab which was in turn based on
Paul Vondizianos interpretation of the song from http://mp3.com

For the most part the original tab was pretty good except here and there 
a few measures were transposed too low a few notes were missing and the 
formatting was sparse (and in the wrong time signature). This song can now 
also be heard exactly on Weeds archive (classtab.org) as the new MIDI which
I am submitting with this is an exact playthrough of this tab.

measure 39 - D (2nd string 3rd fret) changed to 1st B (2nd string open)
measure 41 - E & F moved up 1 octave (from 6th string to 4th string)
measure 47 - E added (6th string open)
measure 48 - E moved up 1 octave (from open 6th string to 4th string 2nd fret)
(some of the fingering could probably be improved in this piece)
