I declare this tab to be my own transcription work of Elton John's
'Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting' from the album 'Goodbye Yellow
Brick Road' and not based on, borrowed from or copied from, any other =
source.

My first public tab!  I encourage and welcome any/all improvements
to fkoletar@cogeco.ca .  Thanks!
There is no substitute for kinetic enthusiasm!
