THE CAMPAIGNER - NEIL YOUNG

Standard Tuning, capo on the 3rd fret.
Note from Wolfgang:
Regarding the intro, I'd like to add that I play the 2nd chord a bit different:
(3x0032). Personally, I'd call it D4/G. Taking he pull-offs on the high
E string into account, the chords of the intro are: D Dsus9 D4/G D4sus9/G. OK,
enough nitpicking.
