>From Phil Black (phil@cyber-naut.com)

After getting some of the fine tabs here I wanted to contribute a little
back to this fine OLGA collection. Please be patient with my first stab
at writing
a tab file, I may be off a bit.  
I used a layout from another picking type song to start out with, but I
think
this song is 4/4 timing and the slashes are 8th notes.  If you can add
any 
improvements or corrections to this version please do.

I learned this by ear from the record and I think this is a great tab 
for anyone who is new to fingerstyle guitar as I am. I'm sure it's not 
completely accurate but it seems to work well for me.
