Notes:
1. This TAB arose from the frustration that no written music exists in any media, re 
this simple but charming song.
2. This song was most likely written for James McCartney (12th September, 1977) who 
would have just turned six years old in 1983. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linda_McCartney
