		    Wooden Jesus - by Great White
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Andy (yalaki)
Email: yalaki@hotmail.com

Song from Great White's "You Can't Get There From Here" album.

I've tabbed this for two guitars though in the mix I think more than 2 are
playing at the same time in some spots.

Key at the bottm of the page.
