As i have said, some bits vary and i havent quite had time yet 
to sit down and figure them all out. Improvising should work 
just fine though, John would have been when he recorded the song. 
"It doesnt got to be this way" bit: 
E|--------------------|---------------------------------- 
C|--------------------|---------------------------------- 
G|-8------------------|-5----------------------------------

G|-x------------------|-5---------------------------------- 
C|-8------------------|-5----------------------------------

   not sure about this 
   it sounds ok on my 12 string 
   but kinda crappy on my 6. 
"I be up sometimes, down sometimes" bit: 
E|------------------------ 
C|------------------------ 
G|------------------------ 
C|-0-0---3-3---10-10--5-5- 
G|-0-0---3-3---10-10--5-5- 
C|-0-0---3-3---10-10--5-5- 
solo: havent quite got to it. I have most parts worked out 
but tabbing it it pure hell. Just improvising should 
sound fine.
