			 THE HIDDEN HEART - KT Tunstall
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

This song is from an album called Songs for Survival: Amazon Tribe. The album was made 
raise awareness of the destruction of the rainforest, as well as tribal peoples in general.

This is kind of a mix of the album version, various live versions, and my own 
(fancy way of saying lack of skill), but it makes for a pretty OK tab.
Oh, and I could stretch out the lyrics to line them up with the notes, but I couldn`t 
them in. Sorry if they`re a little off at times.
