The tab that up here was in another key or something, and it wasn't even correct in that
key.  I believe, so I figured I'd submit this.  Another simple song
from AJJ, yet surprisingly moving.  Enjoy.

Artist:  Andrew Jackson Jihad
Album:   Only God Can Judge Me
Tabber:  Michael McElligott

Intro:  G  (play primarily the bottom three strings, and then once he does a little
sweep of the top strings, just listen).

        Amgiving (x02210@1)birth to kittens and mice

Em (022000@1) C (x32010@1)        GTh (320003@1)- ey went to Heaven.


*Brief Note*  In the beginning of each verse, when you go from G to Am, then to C
(I knew a woman once...and as you know), during that jump from the Am to the C, the
bass plays A - B - C.  Listening closely to the recording, you can make it out.
If you don't have a bass player and would like to imitate that sound, place a
aC/B (x02210@1)chord (a C chord with C in the bass in between Am and C, right before C.
That's all.

I'm tabbing this without a G string on my acoustic, so I hope it sounds fine (shouldn't
make a difference).  Enjoy and keep supporting AJJ...incredible band that shows just
how much simple chords can do.
