One of the greatest songs ever happens to be this one that i have just completed tabbing.
i looked on the net for a good tab of it.. and there were a few ok ones but none that i
really liked.. anyway heres my version.. i did all of it except for those solos in the
end when its fading cause i didnt have the time. anyway hope this works for you i think
it sounds pretty good so play an have fun SWEET RULES!

Any questions, comments, or fellow sweet fans, i encourage you to reach me at
