Tabbed by David Bédard-Barrette, McGill University, Canada, January 2004

This song is on the Everything to Everyone CD. I hope they will make a single
out of this out because it is just brilliant.

Thanks to a guy named Dave Patthews for his work on the song. My version is
basically his first tab with some corrections.

No capo and standard tuning. Any corrections are welcome !
