    Waitin For The Light To Shine - Roger Miller (from the musical Big River)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Doron Kipper

This is the slow version, not the reprise.  I did this by ear, and it sounds pretty
to me...but please email me if you have any comments, suggestions, or corrections.  
I
like to note that in the soundtrack...I think there are two guitars playing...but I have 
this for solo play.  If you found this tab useful...please drop me a note to
me know that my efforts weren't wasted.

I do not recommend trying this with a pick...it's a fingerpicking song.  Also, I have
written a tab before so my sense of timing through the lines is horrible...if you are
as to how fast the song should be, listen to the soundtrack or email me and I can send 
audio of me playing the song exactly as written here.  Enjoy.
