About this tab version
The other versions that are on here were well done but still lacked some of the notes and a bit of accuracy on certain parts of the song. So this one is complete and should be correct. I also put all the lyrics with the tab to be able to use the scroll feature and play through if desired. Was this info helpful? Yes No

There were a few good versions on here already but they were still missing some
small stuff and this song is so beautiful I wanted to make sure it's all right.

Tuning: Standard
