Melody: Taxi Driver Theme (So Close To me Blues)
Chords.
By: Bernard Herrman.
Chord analysis: Mats Fagergren. 2016-11-13

Comment: I have focused on the Jazzy chord progression, and not the tab.. The simple tab "melody"
is just there in order give support for the more important chord changes.
This is the full melody with all chord changes. 
The full melody can be found on the record /CD alt Spotify (look for..A reluctant Hero)
Chord info before the tab/chords.

Wonderful harmonies in this song. Thanks for uploading the chords on UG. Some difficult chords for me, but I will try to learn how to play them.
