From: Mark W 
Subject: TAB: What will you say "Jeff Buckley"

What Will You Say by "Jeff Buckley"
Unreleased
Transcribed by Mark Webber

I taped the Jeff Buckley "J-flies" which was on Triple J (Australia) shortly
after he died and I got to know and love this song.  I'm not sure which concert
the version I've got was played at but this is how it goes.

Use some distortion and lots of reverb.

Time feels like it's flown away,
the days just past and fade away.
What will you say, when they take my place?

w/half of rhythm fig.2
Well it's funny now,
I just don't feel like I'm a man.

Well, that's about it.  I might tab out the whole of the last bit if this
song ever gets released, but for now just improvise.
If you can play this much you can probably play the whole thing.
