Soul Asylum
Sometime to Return
from the CD "Hang Time"

Transcribed by Sean Carey (smcarey@mmm.com)

Guess it's my turn to finally contribute something
to the archives.

I have a few corrections to add to TJGriffey@aol.com's 
transcription (included at the end of this file).  
It's basically right, but some of the notation is confusing, 
I definitely don't agree with how the pre-chorus (bridge?) is 
played, and I transcribed the solo and a key change that were 
left out.  As always, comments, corrections, etc. are welcome.
Anyway, here it is:
