The above is repeated for the verses 4 times.  But the last time no E is
played, instead Jimmy goes back into the intro parts.  Othertimes in the
song he plays the E four times before going back to the intro.  Listen
to the recording to get these changes, it is quite clear.

Note during the song similar riffs to the intro.  The little riff fill goes
something like this.  Note that Jimmy plays variations on the fill.

                          bend from b to c# and then back to b

Let me take you to the movies, can I take you to the show?
Let me be yours ever truly, can I make your garden grow?

>From the houses of the holy, we can watch the white doves go.
>From the door comes Satans daughter, and it only goes to show.  and you know.

There's an angel on my shoulder, in my hand a sword of gold.
Let me wander in your garden, and the seeds of love I'll sow.  You know.

So the world is spinning faster, are you dizzy when you stall
Let the music be your master will you heed the master's call    Ohhh

Said there aint no use in crying, cause it will only, only drive you mad
Does it hurt to hear them lying?  Was this the only world you had?

So let me take you take you to the movies, can I take you baby to the show
Why don't you let me be yours ever truly, Can I make your garden grow?
