okay, this one is exquisitely simple

capo 6h fret
let me define the chords first:

Amaj7: x02120 (it sounds like Jim doesnt tend to play the high string on any of these chords though, so dont put much, if any, emphasis on the high e)

also, a not on this chord. Hammer off and on the 2nd fret of the B string while playing this chord. You'll hear it on the recording.

F#min: 204220 or if its easier for you x04220 (the top string really never sounds in this one)

E: 022100 easy enough, eh? (wow, ya like the unintentional alliteration?)



starts off on the low E string: --0--2--0--  then...

Amaj7 ........F#m......E........F#m...Amaj7
with a little transition in there to the F#m3:

D--------------
A--2--(2)/4-----
E-------------2-

and then to the E:

D------------
A--4--2---0--
E-------------


Somebody stole..............my lighter
.....................Amaj7..............F#m.......E.........F#m....Amaj7

thats how the verse works....

the chorus starts from the ending E chord

ohhhhh they ran...............................ohhhhohohoh
E..................F#m............Amaj7.......F#m........Amaj7

ends with an Amaj7

fiddlecastro was supposed to resurrect the tabs site a while back, but he's been lured away from the Forum by Facebook and life.  I'll see what's up...
Close enough!
