A Few Honest Words  Ben Sollee

Hello everybody, I fell in love with this song a little while ago and I was very
eager to find the chords for it, but I couldn't find them anywhere, so I worked
them out myself. This is my first tab - it should be correct, but nobody's perfect
- so if you happen to find a little inaccuracy, please excuse me. ;)
