 the song is in 3/4, or 6/8, time with a waltz-like feel.)

Ice Cream
As written and recorded by Sarah McLachlan
From the Album "Fumbling Towards Ecstacy"
Transcribed by John Argentiero (jfafreak@wam.umd.edu)

Well, most of this song is played on piano (um, all of it I think) but
live I believe she does it on guitar, or so I've been told/led to
believe, so here's a good arrangement.
Listen to the record for rhythms.

(hum and make cute little happy sounds over intro)
