(Taking My) Life Away  Default

this song is relatively easy, but quite moving, especially on just an acoustic
guitar. I did this off of memory, but its pretty close to right...
I like to play my chord a little varied, so I'll just put the chord name, but
you'll see that I like to play open strings, whatever works for you.
Standard Tuning!!
