     The Doobie Brothers'"Black Water" (by Patrick Simmons) 
     
     Transcription by: Robert Andersen 
     (robert_andersen@hp-paloalto-om5.om.hp.com) 
     
     This is a re-post.  A friendly note from Josh (jpincus@baka.com) pointed 
     out that the correct tuning is "double drop D" (DADGBD).  I have changed 
     the transcription accordingly.  Thanks Josh!
     
     NOTE:   > = accent this note, h = hammer on, p = pull off, b = bend
