That Thing You Do!

from the motion picture of the same name

Written by A. Schlesinger

transcribed by Mike Richards (fmrtst1@smtp.geisinger.edu)


Notes:

-Lyrics in parenthesis are background vocals.

-The riffs may not be exact but the're pretty close.

-All riffs (except the intro and solo) are at the end of the file.

-This is a more accurate version of this song than previous versions,
 however, I give credit their respective authors, becuase I got a few
 of the chords from them.  Sorry I can't give credit to a specific person
 or persons, but I no longer have the files.

-Spacing is in no way relative to timing.

-Most importantly: SEND FEEDBACK (good/bad/whatever)
