It would be great to correspond with some RHP fans.
I'm hard pressed to find a band that I enjoy this much.

Notes:
      1.Sorry I did not take the energy to name all
the chords (I would probably name them wrong anyway)
There is a lot of droning going on throughout, and I
thought this would be the easiest method to relate.
      2.This of course is not exact since I'm reducing
it to one guitar. It does however stand up fairly well.
      3.Lyrics in parenthesis are questionable. I sing,
"..heart's heights"
      4.Parenthesis are used with double-digit fret
numbers for clarity.
      5.See additional performance note at end
concerning OUTRO.

This is a gorgeous little bittersweet piece presented
more as a collage than as a verse,verse,chorus,etc form.
ENJOY!

OUTRO performance note:
I like to pull off the highest fretted note
of the 888(10)ooo, 2o2o4o, and 555oo4 chords
on the upbeat of 2 just prior to moving to the
next chord and allow the open pulled-off note
to ring thru the next chord
