Straighten Out Chords

   
Song: Straighten Out (Cummings, Wallace)
Artist: The Guess Who 
Album: Road Food
Tabber: Nick Gray 
Email: ngray8725@yahoo.ca	
Tuning: Standard

One very simple song with a couple of interesting jazz chords.  The song has a great
jazz feel to it.  My favorite from 
the Road Food album. The chords are complimenting the piano.  Lyrics from
