[Verse]
If I trust in the wind she will 
                  pave me a different road

I will try and start over but I think

I am pulled from the pages where the

This tab and tmv91's corrections are both wrong. I submitted the tab for this song, but it was rejected because THIS tab already existed. Not to offend, but this tab is either mostly wrong, incomplete or just fairly off in many places. THIS is how you place the song, solo INCLUDED: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/home/tab_detail.php?tabid=1175592#add_form
