This is a tricky one and was tricky to tab as it has a key change from A Major to B Major in the last chorus and outro. It is also out of normal form in that the verse chorus ratio is 1:1 on 12 bars each with the exception of the first verse which lends one bar to the outro to maintain balance.
I have noted numbers of bars next to each subheading.

Again I have tried to get the changes in the right place and hope the formatting holds true.

For playing alone this is good to arpegiate all the way through and sounds good. Standard chord shape arpegiating works nicely, but sounds equally good with the more up tempo bits being strummed.

Let me know if you have any correction or suggestion.
