Face the Day  Great White

I've been searching for this one for a while and finally found it in an old
usenet (alt.guitar.tabs) post from 1996. I am just reposting here so
others might learn this awesome song. Very blues-y and one of Great White's
best songs that few people have heard. I don't think Great White
originally wrote it but their version rocks.
[---]Face the Day
Written by Rick Brewster, Doc Neeson and John Brewster
Performed by Great White
From : The Best of Motley Crue and Great White
Tabbed by Mark White
