Just copy and paste this into notepad... We took this song down to the key of E because its a lot easier on guitar with open chords (without having to use capo). The original is F so it's still got lots of room for vocals too. So if you do it in the original key, just take all the notes up a fret :)

Lemme know if you like it!
