Cowgirl in the Sand  Neil Young

TITLE: COWGIRL IN THE SAND
ALBUM: 4 WAY STREET
SUBMITTED BY: David M
(via HyperRust)
NOTES:
* Riff #1, at the song's introduction, is TABed.
* Each time played, Riff #1 is different. But I have not
TABed the riff for each variation.
* Riff #2 is also slightly different each time but only one
variation is TABed.
* The individual notes are played within the strum of the chord,
with bass part of the chord being strummed sort of alternating
with the TABed notes. Down stroke is accentuated.
TUNING: down 1 step (DGCFAD)
