European Swallow  The Refreshments

The Refreshments-"European Swallow"
From: Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy
Tabbed by: J-Punk (E-mail: kalwin@seidata.com)
This is my first tab, so no guarantees. It should be pretty close, though.
This came from my guitar skill, my Refreshments fanatacism, & lack of Refreshments
tabs on the net.
