Tab by:omanyen@fusemail.com

No one has tabbed this song completely, so I'll do it.
I've included most, ( if not all ) of the fill-in runs
which you hear throughout the song. There are alot of 
them. I've done this in very detailed, small increments
to be more easily read. I've tried to place them where
they belong in reference to the lyrics.

 Many of these runs and fill-in runs are ad-libbed throughtout
 the song, feel free to do the same. Mix them up, throw them
 around, and just have a great time doing it.


   Any questions, comments, or complaints, feel free
   to E-mail me or post a thread at this sight.
