Bridge Over Troubled Water  Simon & Garfunkel

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bridge over Troubled Waters
By Paul Simon
Original Music by Paul Simon
Tabbed from DAT demo by Howard Morgen
Enter for the Net by an unidentified copyright violator...
Note: I am not going to list the chords since the TAB is much more
reflective of what you need to do...don't try to make complete chords if
it is inconvenient, just finger what is needed and forget the rest...
