		     LOW LIFE IN HIGH PLACES -- Thunder
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: FunkHammer
Email: hayseed@graffiti.net

Tuning: Standard

NOTES: Great song by a great, unheralded band. This tab is for the acoustic version
of the song as found on the "They Think It's All Over..." album. However, aside from
the electric parts, the acoustic voicings match up fairly close to those on the studio
version. I've kept the tab to a fairly simple diagramming of just the chord progressions,
leaving it up to the listener to discern the strumming/picking patterns on the
recordings -- they're pretty easy to figure out. Here we go...
