Damien Rice – Accidental Babies tab

Accidental Babies
by Damien Rice

This song is, of course, originally performed on the piano. This is not so much an
at a note-by-note transcription into guitar tablature, as it is a suggestion on how to make
song work with just you and your guitar. As such, the tab is a bit schematic. Play 
with the chords, that sounds really good!
