    Papa Dont Preach

  • Artist:

    Glee Cast

Hey Guys and Girls. This is the first tab I have ever done so hopefully it
will be of some use to someone. This song was originally performed by
Madonna and then later covered by Kelly Osbourne. I saw this version while
watching Glee. Its a great acoustic solo song in its simplicity. I hope you
enjoy it. If you do please rate it. You only need to play the first three
strings of each chord and you the strumming pattern is easy enough to 
figure out.
