When The Boys Light Up: Newsboys

Drop D tuning

Now, I'm not entirely sure about the verses and intros with the strumming, but I think it's accurate. Also, timing has a lot to do with this tab. Listen to the song for timing.

You know what, I tried this is Drop C# (C# G# C# F# A# D#) and I think it sounds better. I'll fix that.
