Mr. Jones  Counting Crows

Hello, I'm not sure who to send this too, but I have a correction.
Ok, This is my FIRST REAL attempt at figuring out a songs chords.
I think I have them pretty much correct. (Remember now....I am a drummer by
trade- I know boo hiss). The only thing that might be wrong is the first
chord to the "chours" section. If you have any corrections, let me know.
Good job! But, you are right in you're suspician about that first
chord to the chorus section -- it should be a "C" and not an "Am".
Give it a try, you will like what you hear.
So, to the masters that be, here is the .tab file, exactly as I have
downloaded it, except for the appropriate Am to C chord changes:
