HARPIES BIZARRE / Elvis Costello
--------------------------------

By Declan Patric Aloysius MacManus
From Elvis Costello's "Mighty Like a Rose", (c) 1991

The lyrics were type by one anonymous who provided the lyrics for the album,
available via ftp from cs.uwp.edu.
The "Intro E" sections for organ can be played on guitar, as transcribed in
TAB (using TAB MASTER). The little woodwind instrument solo is not [yet!]
transcribed, but the chords are available, with added beat measures: 7xE 1xB
mean that in two 4/4 bars, play 7 beats of chord E, and then 1 beat of B.
Enjoy! Comments/corrections/additions/ideas/questions are always welcome,
