First Saxophone fill (in case you're in one of those lame-o 
bands without a Saxophone ;)) 
 
1st Sax fill: 
e|-12-------| 
B|---12b--10| 
G|----------| 
D|----------| 
A|----------| 
E|----------| 
 
 
2nd Sax fill: 
(slide up to the last note 
and hold it as long as you can... 
squeeze tight for sustain!) 
e|-12-------|----/17---| 
B|---12b--10|----------| 
G|----------|----------| 
D|----------|----------| 
A|----------|----------| 
E|----------|----------| 
 
 
Chorus: 
 
(no leads here on the original version, 
 but I put some in as the song is kind of 
 boring with out them (and if you  
 don't have a sax in your band)   
 
So I make my F#m and A like this: 
 
F#m    A    
-2-   -X-  
-2-   -2- 
-2-   -2- 
-4-   -2- 
-4-   -0- 
-2-   -X- 
 
Use your first finger to make the A chord, 
and you're right in position for some fills  
using your A pentanoic MAJOR scale 
 
  F#m                A 
||:--------|--------|--------|--------:||

Sometime I feel like...

OK, now just repeat the Verse and Intro from above again, 
but before the chorus use the second sax fill... 
 
 
 
Now the bridge: 
||:--------|-3------:|| 
||:---3-6-3|---3-6-3:|| 
||:--------|--------:|| 
||:-5------|--------:|| (x2) 
||:--------|--------:|| 
||:--------|--------:|| 
 
And back to the chorus..., and your done. Almost. 
 
End on:
