Movies Soundtracks - Kiss From A Rose tab



Hi all,

Here's my attempt at Seals "Kiss from a Rose".  This was transcribed from the 
radio, so it was hard to tell if the proper chords were plain E, or E5, or Em. 
 For convenience I've just called them E unless I am otherwise sure.
Also, the lyrics are a little murky.  I got these from the lyric ftp site, but 
personally, I prefer the song to be about a "kiss from a rose on the grave".  
Much more meaningful, huh!

Well, here goes....
