Mary Jo  Belle and Sebastian

Mary Jo - Belle and Sebastian
 
 -----------------------------

Tabbed By Caz1977
Great song, simple is best, as with most of Belle and Sebastian's songs, especially the
ones. I've tabbed this version with alternate chords
for a different key a full step lower than the song as it's easier to play
with simpler chords if you don't want to play along with the song. They're
listed below.
Alternate chords 1 step lower
