The reason I wrote the chords for this song (My first tab ever) is because I can't even 
the lyrics on the internet.
If anyone else knows this song and the lyrics please email me at lmnt1080@verizon.net 
any corrections.
Trying to find these lyrics was like writing a history report on presidential assassinations.

I play this on acoustic to woo the political science ladies.
