Notation:
I use the following symbols:
h: hammer-on
p: pull-off

This was taken off the album Until We Have Wings. I thought the
lyrics and music are very pretty in this song, and go well together
(if only I could hit the high notes like Randy does...:( ), and the
tab came during a fit of inspiration when I figured it out in about
2 hours work (after trying to figure it out previously for about a
year and a half!). The lyrics I've noted are probably wrong (I don't have
the words with me, so they came from my muddled memory), but the
syllables are in the right place, for what it's worth. Chord names
are my approximations - my theory is not very good yet. The rhythm is
probably off, too - I tried my best, but would welcome any corrections,
as always.  All in all, a nice piece. Hope you enjoy it.
