Colours of the wind (From the movie "Pocahontas")

This is the key I play in. If you want to play in the same key as the movie
you can either tune your guitar one half step down or use the transpose function.
If you use the transpose function I would recommend you to transpose down 5 half steps
and then put a capo on fret 4.
