Right.  I've seen several different tabs for this song, but they all miss 
essential bits and pieces.  The notes I've given are right, you may want to 
play them somewhere else, but on my acoustic, these sounded closest to John.

So here it is, in full effect, as on the CD.  Enjoy.

For the solos, a metal slide is preferred.

And that's it.  Should be fairly close to right.
And if you don't like it, you can Suck My...
