song. The lyrics and chord changes for the verse are as follows:

   When I needed you
   To be my girl
   When I needed you
                    A5
   To give me a whirl
chorus-
   G5
   When I wanted all you had
                  (main riff)
   And what you gave me turned out all bad
    C5      A   Bb5 C5  D5
   I needed all your love

   (solo 2,basically the same as solo 1 except with a few changes that are
too minor to transcribe)

   (end on D-A-G-D(or something very similar))

That's it. Have fun with it.
