I am trying to copy the song with chords exactly with lyrics & specified chords on top of the words, but it becomes zig-zag/mis-alligned.

I am trying to copy from notepad. Is there any way, can I bring exactly the lines in proper format?

I am learning guitar play for past 7 months & I was taught this song on my last class.

How do I post the lyrics with tabs properly?



Get the PDF file from the previous page...... will have to realign the whole thing by hand.....

Or.....Get a screenshot and save as an image.......Press PrintScreen and paste in paint.


To copy from notepad or any other there's no way to save the formatting. Just put the chords next to or in between the words in

Chords/Strumming patterns discussed with my Guitarist, Mr.Dean Lezarus
in the class. After realising sounding close to original,
it is posted. -by Karthik Siddhun


I use the strumming pattern option 2 to play the song, which is mentioned already here. The pattern can be more observed in "chorus(humming)" part of the song if I am not wrong.

Please, feel free to correct if mistakes found.I will be learning another song next week. I'll share with you.



Wow.....Nice augmentation. Really, outstanding work. I will certainly, sooner or later incorporate these changes into the main one (as another option). Thanks for sharing.....
