	  		Tuning : Standard EADGBE 
  
Ok, the picking at the start is just all done around this chord : (244300) which is  
just an F# with the two high strings left open.

Then back to the intro picking. 
  
The next bit is the lead-in to the chorus - hold this chord (043400) and pick the  
following notes, slightly muted - 
  
  'no    body  was     explaining themselves   you got to'

A----4-4--------4-4--------4-4--------4-4------------- 
E----------------------------------------------------- 
  
Back to the intro picking.  Then repeat for 'nobody plays these games with themselves'   
Then the third time -  
  
  'relax  your hand   its   ok to fall you've got to' 
E----------------------------------------------------- 
B----------------------------------------------------- 
G------------4----------4------------(pause)---------- 
D--------3-3--------3-3-------------------------------

    'TUMBLE DOOOOOOOOWN		  	  TUMBLE DOOOOWN' 
E----0--------------------------------0---------------

G----1--------------------------------0--------------- 
D----2--------------------------------2--------------- 
A----2--------------------------------2---------------

       'TUMBLE DOOOOWN	          tumble down on meee'	 
E----0----------------------------0-------------------- 
B----0-----------------------------0------------------- 
G----1------------------------------0------------------ 
D----2-------------------------------2----------------- 
A----2--------------------------------2---------------- 
E----0---------------------------------0--------------- 
  
That last E minor is strummed upwards just once, and left ringing as he sings  
'meee-eee-eee-eee-eee' and then its back to the good ol' intro picking.
