	                    "LOVE SONG" off LP "Tumbleweed Connection" (1970)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Les Gibson

Tuning: Standard.

Lovely acoustic ballad written by Lesley Duncan, recorded by Elton on the much underrated 
early album Tumbleweed Connection: really simple to play.

This is the elton john version of the song; NOT the Lesley Duncan version.
