Transcription:  mbishop@cnu.edu, litgo@aol.com

                    1998-10-18        

Chords:

C          XX555X	(Not sure about these two, but these sound
D          XX777X	(like the right voicings)
G       (T)3X5433       


For each measure, the guitar plays a slight backbeat C and D chords
that were subtle enough for me to miss (thanks Litgo), but as can
be heard on the record, the end of each measure accents the G chord.
I filled in the chords for the first verse or so, and it continues
the same from there.  A couple times the guitar does something a
little different, but this is essentially what is happening in this
song.  As far as I know, this has been only commerically released
on the Maximum R&B box set.
