When I Fall  Barenaked Ladies

Song: When I fall
Artist: Barenaked Ladies
Album: Rock Spectacle
This is a good song! Of course, all that Ladies' songs are awesome
so, this is no great feat. However, it took me a while to get the
details right. It's played on an acoustic guitar in standard tuning.
I'm not much good at writing in timing, so you'll have to figure that
out yourselves, sorry. At the end you play the first half of the chorus
a lot of times, and then you play the outro. You'll figure it out.
INTRO: (2X)
