Subject: TAB: La Bamba by Richie Valens

I have a screwed up version of this under "traditional mexican folk songs" (I think).  Could you remove that entirely (it was mine) and/or replace it with this?  This is corrected.

                                 LA BAMBA

Traditional Mexican folk song, as done by Richie Valens

My English teacher taught me how to play this.  Here's my
transcription.  One guitar plays the tab, the other plays the chords:

    C     F     G               C     F     G

Para bailar La Bamba
Para bailar La Bamba se necessita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia y otra cosita y arriba y arriba
Ay arriba y arriba por ti sere por ti sere por ti sere
Yo no soy marinero soy capitan soy capitan soy capitan

Bamba la Bamba
Bamba la Bamba
Bamba la Bamba
Bamba la Bamba

I got the lyrics from what was already in OLGA!
