"From Red to Blue"
 Billy Bragg
(from the album "William Bloke")

Notes: I suggest playing it using barre chords with a rhythm similar to that
used in the first bar of the intro. On the CD it is actually about a quarter
tone lower than shown below (who cares right?). The breaks aren't quite
perfect but will sound effective enough.
