Band:     ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Written:  JEFF LYNNE
Disc:     SECRET MESSAGES (Track 3)
Tabbed:   Nadja Dee (Seattle)

Note: I looked and looked online but nobody has tabbed this ELO track from Secret 
 This is NOT the famous Beatle’s Paul McCartney Bluebird…but it’s a very pretty song.  Nothing 
tricky, pretty straight forward song, easily played on acoustic guitar.
