A chord diagramA majorA tab by Gedaliah Ejdelman
E-mail: gejdel69@yahoo.com

I couldn't really line the lyrics too well with the
tabs so thats why they're separate except in the
chorus. And also don't mind the slashes; I just put
them there so I could separate the chords one from
another after I realized that spaces don't work.
 Intro:
 (Piano plays the first three notes and then then the
 guitar enters and plays its part twice:)
