Song: An Oak Tree Stands Beside A Linden
Artist: I Can Make A Mess...
Album: ...Like Nobody's Business

A beautiful song that for some reason noone wanted to tab. I won't tab the exact
strumming, it's easy to figure out from the song. The words are for the most part
in line with the chords they're played with.


Tuning: Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb (Half-Step Down)

she can   on---ly   see-----, what she's a--fraid  to   see(shes now scared)
