Subject: 6th Avenue Heartache  by  The Wallflowers


sorry the last sub.  messed up when i dropped it in my e-mail
here it is fixed.

THE WALLFLOWERS
Bringing Down The Horse
I just bought this CD today, but i'm pretty sure the chords are right.
However the lyrics I had to figure out on my own, so don't scream if they're
a little off, (Jakob can slurr like only a Dylan can [I mean that in a good
way]).
