Big Country - Steeltown tab

				Steeltown
written by Big Country
Cd Without The Aid Of A Safety Net
any queries or corrections (I'm sure there's loads) e-mail me, tom, at :-toma29@hotmail.com 

This is an awesome live version of an already great album track about the
decline of the industry in Western Europe, and how one man would swap anothers
destiny for his own.
God knows what key it's in I'm really a bad guitar player, I just love big
country, anyway this is my attempt at tabbing it.

Stuart Intro with chorus and delay (about 280ms?) Dunno what the hell Bruce
is playing, but it rocks.
This is not very accurate especially the last bit, but looking at the dvd it
looks ok just can't work out the last bit.
