Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


concrete and clay   Unit Four Plus Two







Two versions of this battled it out on the US charts: one by the composer,
Eddie Rambeau, and a cover by the Unit 4+2.  This transcription is of the
latter, which was probably recorded in C and sped up to Db for the single.

Verse 2:

	All around

	So tenderly
