Note: This song is not in standard tuning on the recording.
It's almost in the key of F major but not quite. On an electronic
tuner I had to tune my open strings all sharp to the point of
making my E string almost an F but not quite.  The needle was
buried all the way to the right or sharp side.  It's probably 
easier to tune your bass E string this way, then tune the other
strings by the fret and ear method.  This same kind of tuning was
also on My Heart Is Lost To You on this same album.
