Been wishing on these stars too long

Basically do Cadd9 here and throw in a bass note through the lyrics until you get to the 
next verse

That’s basically the whole song. End it on A-3.

I didn’t tab it note per lyric because it’s easy to figure out when you get the
fingering down and just listen to the song for where the bass notes come in. I hope you all
found this tab helpful and will use it to add this awesome song to your collection. This 
version of the song sounds best with nylon strings in my opinion but play as you will.
