Tuning: Standard Capo 3rd fret
     


Pattern A (main bit for verses and intro:)
     
|------0-|---5----|-----0--|---0----| 
|---1----|3---3---|---1--31|----3---| 
|--0-0---|--0--0--|--0-0---|--2--2--| 
|-2---2-2|-4----4-|-2------|-4----4-| 
|0--0--0-|0--0---0|0--0--0-|0--0---0| 
|--------|--------|--------|--------|
     
Pattern B ("she will tell you..")
     
|---1----|-----1--|------0-|---0----|  (last bar occurs 
|--3-3---|---0--0-|---0----|0---0---|  with a variety 
|-2---2-2|--2-2--0|--0-0---|--0--0--|  of pickings: 
|0--0--0-|-0------|-2---2-2|-2----2-|  this is just 
|--------|--------|---3--3-|---3---3|  my favourite) 
|--------|3--3--3-|3-------|3-------|
     
Pattern C ("she wouldn't be there...")
     
  --------|---0----|------0-|---0----|  (likewise 
  ---3----|----0---|---3----|1-----1-|  these last 
  --2-2---|--7--7--|--0-0---|--0--0--|  two bars) 
  -0---0-0|-6----6-|-4---4-4|-2--2--2|
H02--2--2-|--------|0--0--0-|0--0--0-|
  --------|0-------|--------|--------|
     
The structure is straightforward: from here we go back
to Pattern A (starting from the second bar). The only other 
complication is at "thought you'd found her" when the first
2 bars of B are followed by the first 2 of C, then A to the end.
