                ALWAYS WHERE I NEED TO BE (Single) - THE KOOKS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: KingBuz

I originally tabbed this song in November 07, from their Radio 1 Live Lounge Tour 
performance in 2006, but with the new single and slightly different sound I have updated this 
and put the new lyrics in too.

If you want to play my acoustic tab of this song it’s pretty much exactly the same but 
the capo on fret 2.
Comments welcome, please rate

Tuning: EADGBe
