THE LONGER THE WAITING (THE SWEETER THE KISS) by Josh Turner
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Very similar to the version by Anna Ternheim, but transposed a couple of
half-steps higher, which Josh then drops a whole octave. The Ebm chord was
just obnoxious to try to play, so if you wish you can just sub in the C
chord. Changes the mood a little bit, but it's much easier to play.
