YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE RECORDING in GCEA tuning, if you put your capo on the 2nd fret! You can play the song with just 4 chords, C D Em and G, but I've also thrown the chord diagrams in for Dsus4 (used in the 3rd line of each verse - I think it sounds right there), Gsus4, and G5. You can throw in the Gsus4 however it feels good to you. And if you want to be fancy, in the 2nd bar of the INTRO, try the walk-down of G5, Gsus4, and G. It's what you'll hear them doing!
