there you have it. The GOOD Today tab. if any of you havent seen SP on VH1 Storytellers,
you should, Billy tells all about how he wrote this song, and he says its way more of a
negative song that a positive song, but people just focus on the 'today is the
greatest..' line and they dont listen to the negativity in the song, etc. anyways,
great song. tried my best with the tab, i think its good to go.-ryan.
