			I DONT WANT TO KNOW - THE DONNAS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Nicholas Bradley
Email: RDK1LL@Hotmail.com
Comment: A great single off the Gold Medal Album.
	 The main riff is pretty straight forward, you might have to
	 listen to the song to get the rythym though. The bridge and
         solo might seem a bit off but "close enough's near enough".

Tuning: Standard
