Bubba Ho-Tep
Tabbed by Dave "Primusfan" Neill

If you saw Bubba Ho-Tep, you heard that spaghetti western-esque song throughout
the movie but most notably, at the end of the movie (unless you were like me
and were sobbing uncontrollably from the extremely sad ending all the way home
from the theater):(


As usual, this was done by ear listening to the song while the credits rolled.
Feel free to leave feedback and suggestions. You really have to know how the
song sounds to play it. If you've never seen Bubba Ho-Tep, don't waste you're
time trying to play this...go out and buy Bubba Ho-Tep.:D
