repeat *1 with extra Asus2 and B rhythm srokes added.
G3 starts at :12 [after what is tabbed above] and ends
at lyrics.

 note: rhythm on this tab is nonexistent and the lines of
 G3 do not correspond to the rhythm of G1&2's tab.  Listen
 to the recording as a guide...  bm.

There's this addition to *1 after G3's last E and
just before the lyrics:

G1 & G2

Billy sings "It's not easy...when you're alone."

Under the entire song (excluding the intro and outro)
is a 4th guitar playing _seemingly_ at random these
three notes, something like the following:

Well, there's Whir for you.  I still can't figure out the  
E's and other chords under the chorus (Whir yourself around...
part)  If you know it please E-mail me.  Enjoy it.  Hope
it's not too confusing (I didn't wanna tab out repetitive
lines) and it helps out.
