[CHORUS]
 Donít worry, donít bring yourself down 
 Weíre coming to chase you like a hound 
 Donít worry, donít bring yourself down 
 Weíre coming to save your mind and town 

[OUTRO]
play CHORUS chords over solo and when frank comes back in with falsetto.

end on G#m
_________________________________________________________________________

  *i think this chord is Emaj7, just in the chorus

 you can play it like:    or:   or maybe:
e--0----------------------0---------0---
b--0----------------------9---------0---
g--8----------------------8---------8---
d--9----------------------9---------6---
a--7----------------------7---------7---
e--0----------------------0---------0---

hell wont freeze over if you play it differently than frank does. 
so, improvise, take your pick. play a C for all i care, although 
it would sound terrible. very bad.

the piano is definitely playing Emaj7. if you just wanna play:
a--2--
e--0--

that's cool too.
