  All drive me crazy, don't stop, don't stop, don't stop don't stop, cause....  it's so nice...

That's It!!!

I hope you guys enjoy this one, this is seriously my first ever tab I've done completely by myself
so please let me know how I did, I can handle your opinion/recommendations so be honest please.
Note that i changed the "~" symbol to "let note/chord ring", basically the same as sustain, because
I am too lazy to go back and change every symbol in the tab.  Let me know of other songs you would 
like to see me tab.

Thanks, Rob
