On the chorus I think the chords might be a bit switched around there. The A and the E7 need to be played in the opposite places.

the way u laid this out sucks
-paramedic79ca | 7/1/2005
I think it's laid out pretty fine. I've seen
this used a lot. It's a good idea for songs
where you're repeating the same chords for
each of the verses. When you finish the first verse, you can look back at the top of the page where it says 2), and read that
first line.
