Caravan - With An Ear To The Ground You Can Make It tab

                    WITH AN EAR TO THE GROUND YOU CAN MAKE IT
                             As recorded by Caravan

Words and Music by Pye Hastings
Transcribed by Jeremy Diringer (dwarfmuncher(at)gmail.com)

This isn't a strict note-for-note transcription; that can be found in the Powertab version 
(available at: http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/c/caravan/
with_an_ear_to_the_ground_you_can_make_it_power_tab.htm)
Rather, this is more like a chord sheet that also features riffs and solos.
