Lynard Skynard - Simple Man

Tabbed By: Matt Lenda

this is a classic song by a classic group.  some great guitar work as well.
as of now i only have the intro, verse, chorus, and interlude.  the guitar solo is
traking some time.  most likely this is in the book.

note: if your computer interprets this tab as a messed up, mixed up, jumble of
numbers on lines (like mine does), copy and paste it into a word document and
change the text to courier size 10.
