Tuning: CGCGGE

This is the 2nd song of the first four song medley from the album 
Once I Was an Eagle 

The strumming throughout this song is a consistent up and down strum with 
her thumb. Counted 1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a (technically speaking!) 
If you just relax and feel it out it might be easier than trying to count 
it. I guess it just depends on what kind of person you are.

This is after the part- dirty little hands on me no oh, no oh- and 
is the bridge going into the next verse, just before the -when we were in 
love- and in the outro. Not sure if 1, 2, 3, 4 is how you would count this. 
Feels a little more like twelves but you get the idea. Besides if you 
just relax and let you your body feel it, you will not need to count it.
