______________________________________________________________________

That's it! I hope you like this song... It has the cool Egyptian sound

that "Come Out and Play" had, but better. This is my first attempt ever

to tab a song and I think I did pretty damn good. Just listen carefully

to the lead. I have it pretty close. Just improvise! Good luck.
