KATY SAYS TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE (Christine Lavin)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[You can see from the tablature that her picking pattern can be fairly
 random in this song; just ad lib it if you get frustrated.  You're on
 your own after the first verse.]
[By the way, the words aren't exactly lined up with the tab; they're
 just there for guides.]
