Tabbed by: djtdub105 
 
Hey this is my first fully tabbed song, i hope its alrite.  it sounds pretty close to  
cd, but the only part im not sure about is the bridge. if you're just playing solo, use  
2 for a fuller sound.  feel free to post corrections or better versions.  be sure 
to check out gavin degraw if your haven't already, he's an amazing singer/songwriter.
