The Island Of Children's Children - solo guitar arrangement

nice over the top. Please enjoy!

That's it! Of course improvise around, there's plenty of room to. One improvisation to 
is bending the last note in Guitar riff b like this:

                               h bend up and down 1/2 step

a ----0-------0---|2---------------|
d 0-------4-------|--------2-------|

As for the lyrics i'm not totally sure what they are, but here's my stab at guessing them:


Swim to shore
We two
Pack  the kids
We who
Blue Soft Wave
Too dry
Scream and shout
Go hide

Sin for you who they, will find your way
While go way nice and,  dark come back
Home
+
With you, who falls,  we who, so small,
Can I please try, make it good again

Good luck! Please send me any questions or comments. I have recorded a version of this 
get in touch if yoou'd like to hear it.
