[Main Base line]: 

  Note this is a very important element in the song.
  Other than some light strumming and some nice sounding
  licks here and there this base line drives the song.

[Main Guitar Riff]: 

  Chords that are played under the bass.  This is acoustic
  guitar and is strummed very _lightly_.  This part is very
  hard to make out so once again it is could be wrong.

Intro: [MAIN RIFF] 4x's


[Main Riff]:  

  Played through entire song, except when [BASE Fill 1] is
  played then [Main Riff] starts up again

I lay my head on her bosom
To cry myself to sleep  
I see no greater wisdom    [BASE Fill 1]
She has given me           [Main Riff] starts up here after this line


[Fill 1][electric]:  This is a SLOW slide.  Listen to the CD

La Dolly Vita       [Fill 1]
Sweet as true love
La Dolly Vita       [Fill 1]
Cool as ice cream  
Cool as ice cream  

[Solo][electric]:  

  I KNOW this isn't exact, but its sounds fairly close.
  oh yah, you better appreciate this solo!

[Main Riff]
You hear a lot of visions
You can't even stop
Can't see what you're missing
Spinning like a top

[small variation from the main riff]: Figure it out.  Not tuff.
Fade away I want to see her
Fade away I want to see her  
I only want to meet her  

[Main Riff]
La Dolly Vita       [Fill 1]
True as blue sky  
La Dolly Vita       [Fill 1]
Cool as ice cream  
Cool as ice cream  

[Some Crash Cymbols]
Take it all the way down  
Forsake ones you have now  
Take it all the way down  

[Sorry the outro escapes me.  Its really distorted and hard to figure out]
