FLOATING ON THE LEHIGH - DEPARTMENT OF EAGLES
======================================================================

Tabbed by Ben Chen
November 26, 2010

Haven't seen a live performance of this song, so I have no idea how
correct this is. No doubt there are differences with the recording,
but this is more or less how I've been playing it. The chord in the 
dissonant section is mighty weird, but I think it at least approximates
what that teetering atmospheric decadence sounds like on a solo 
acoustic. Give it a try.


Drop D tuning (DADGBe)
