Halo by Texas

Tabbed by Frederic Maquet
Hello! This is quite a hard song to play, from the
Texas "White on Blonde" album...I've put the easy way
of playing it at the bottom, if you can't be asked
playing it the hard way...it sounds pretty good too.
For the Gmaj7, you'll need to use your thumb (i.e: have
big hands)...if you can't reach the E bass string...
just forget the bass!
Enjoy....email corrections/questions/etc... to Frederic Maquet

Br[G]ight lights city, your heart re[Gmaj7]ligion,
Superstars in their [G]own private movie,
they play just like [Csus2]childr[C]en

The kiss and [G]tell of it all,
to her it [Csus2]seems s[C]o obscene

We all love her, to that we confess

>From their blindness, she seems much further,
Like on the wide screen viewing,
Going down on her...
Play bridge then chorus
