Chorus-

Verse 2-
Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I
The man they call Jayne
He turned 'round his plane
And let that money hit sky
He dropped it onto our houses
He dropped it into our yards
The man they call Jayne
He stole away our pain
And headed out for the stars

Chorus-

One correction, if you don't mind me saying...

Quote:


......G7
ain't hard to explain
......C
The hero of Canton
.....G7................C.........C/B...Am
the man they call Jayne



"The hero of Canton" line should end on Am, like this:

......C......Am...
The hero of Canton

And (for the record) the little segway from the chorus to the verse is:

e--------------------------
B--------------------------
G--------------------------
D---------------2----------
A---3---2---0-------0------
E--------------------------

I'm gonna have to disagree with that Am. I listened many, many times and am 100% postive that it stays on C. Also. there is no single note run like the tab you posted, those notes are all just part of the chord work (C, C/B, Am, with a hammer on from D to E within the Am chord the second time).

the movie is not the Series. Only the facts have been changed, to irritate the innocent; the names of the actors and characters remain the same

Probably not gonna...

but in my defence I was still in bed when she came in (to grab her cell phone or something that she'd left in my room), saw Firefly, and went "Ooh! Can I take this?"

I plead 'not-awake-enough-to-think'
