tunes that you know and love so.
E               C#                      F#7
Southern Nights, just as good even when closed your eyes.

I apologize, to any one who can truly say
             B7
that he has found a better way.

Southern Skies, have you ever noticed southern skies?
A
It's precious beauty lies just beyond the eye.
        G#m                                B7
It goes running through your soul like the stories told of old.
E        C#                             F#7
Old man, he and his dog that walked the old land.
       A           
Every flower touched his cold hand.
      G#m                        B7                   E
As he slowly walked by, weeping willows would cry for joy.

Great tab! I think there's one small correction.After the main riff, the fill they play (on bass and guitar) to get back to a new line in the verse should be *ascending* instead of *descending*. Try this: Part 4E----------------------------|B----------------------------|G----------------------------|D--------------------0--1--2--|A--------0--1--2--3----------|E--3--4----------------------|
Thanks again!
