Note:  The bends on the fifth string have been indicated as 5^6^5 - meaning

if played on the 6th fret) and back down again.

fingers     feeling my face

      But these sentimental journeys

    Late at night -

pleasure      You give me such pain

888700          777777
   Who left her long black hair

550000
in our bathtub drain?
