Songs From An American Movie Volume 1: Learning How To Smile

"Hi, this is Peggy, leave a nice message or I'll kill ya"
"Hey Peggy it's me. You are never gonna believe what happened to me today"

!!!!NOTE!!!! - The third chord in the following riff (which is also used throughout
the tab) may well be wrong. There's about half a million suggestions for it down at 
the bottom of the tab, with the most recent at the bottom, including the word from 
Art himself, but anyway have a look and decide for yourself

With the lights in the office around you
Those blond streaks they look so pretty in your black hair

Alright, I don't see any comments on the bottom . . . but anyway, If you're talking about the Bm, it sounds right to me. Alot easier to play in the 2nd fret too.
