An Apple for an Apple
Miles Kurosky

The song has a slightly different structure than verse/chorus/bridge.  I've labeled them
Intro/I/II/III/IV but that's totally arbitrary.  The chords should correspond well and
lyrics are my best attempt at deciphering them from the myspace ripped audio.  Pretty 
but not gospel.  I didn't tab out the finger-picked intro or the second guitar lines.

Fingerpicking on C that continues through out verse 1.

CBring (x32010@1)out your dead, kids.  Bring out your dead.

Your sons and daughters, they won't be spared

	     Am (x02210@1)		Gnow (320003@1)now they fall from these trees so i did my part
