Les Miserables - Bring Him Home tab

"Bring him Home" is a soliloquy sung by the main character, Jean Valjean in
the hit Broadway musical "Les Miserables". It is by far my favourite musical
and the piece has a truly beautiful melody that is a pleasure to play. This
is my first ever Guitar Tab so I hope that people can make use of it and
enjoy playing this piece as much as I did ~ Miles Fletcher.

The last two bars are played at a gradually decreasing tempo and the last five notes (which I have enclosed in square brackets) are gently strummed with the thumb. Feel free to email me at purplesparkz@ymail.com if you have any questions, Miles Fletcher.
