I have lyrics for an intro verse on this song, but I've yet to find a recorded version that uses them so I have nothing from which to transcribe. If you know of one (or have one) I'd appreciate hearing from you.

The lyric and guitar chord transcriptions on this site are the work of The Guitarguy and are intended for private study, research, or educational purposes only. Individual transcriptions are inspired by and and based upon the recorded versions cited, but are not necessarily exact replications of those recorded versions.
