-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Andreas Hejndorf

Tuning: EADGBe

So, this is just a nice little acoustic version of this song, which sounds 
wonderful on a Western guitar. This is also my first tab, so I hope you like it :)

In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
