TEXARKANA

bass tab from Dave Silverstone (dsgumby@dreamscape.com)

One of my faves from OOT.  Easy one to sing along to.
It's pretty easy to pick out the line, so just put the notes to the music I
don't think ya need the measures.

A good way to remember how to sing the chorus:

start the "Catch me if I fall" on the rest between the two little chorus
sub riffs, so it goes like this:
                               Catch me if I fall

Have fun with it, kids!
