The verse pattern varies a little bit I suppose... but if you stick to this pattern
you should be awlright...

  Sunlight beats down hard here                 Count the cracks in the ground
  At night I dream of the hummingbird           Feel the beating of its wings

  And we sleep through days of flood and fire   At night we fly above this town
  And if you only had once choice my dear       Would you fly or would you sing?

CHORUS

Typical McRae pattern... has he not got RSI yet? Apart from watch out for the different
first note with the G being pinched to give it a bit of extra OOMPH, I assume...

...and then you have the "And in a year of new beginnings..." nonsence with the verse
picking pattern and then "Here she comes... hummingbird..." over the chorus pattern
for what seems like eternity until the end...

And that's it... nice song. Any comments (no ornithologists please...) to
