Where were you last night ? Traveling Wilburys
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Another good one from the Wilbury's "Vol. 3". It's fun to play these songs 
with more than one acoustic guitar, using capos in different positions. 
That's what the Wilbury sound is about anyway.

I think I got pretty close. I'm not sure about the C chord in the "You 
weren't around me when they found me" part and the corresponding sections, 
though. Any ideas anybody? Thanks for comments!
