Guitar tabs with lyrics

Sakura
"cherry blossom"

This is the traditional Japanese koto piece. I suggest an alternate tunning
to move the notes up to the higher strings for better timbre, but this tab
is for standard tuning and I used the highest strings possible in keeping
with accuracy.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms are everywhere.
Like a cloud from out the sky, mist of blossoms fills the air,
Cherries, cherries, blossoming. Come and see, come and see.
Let all see and sing.

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms are everywhere.
Like a cloud from out the sky, mist of blossoms fills the air,
Cherries, cherries, blossoming. Come and see, come and see.
Let all see and sing.
