You come back in my arms

Subject: Fwd: LYR CORR: CRD/TAB:"Blue" by the Jayhawks (REPOST)


Figure I'll take this opportunity to correct what I think are some 
wrong lyrics, including omitting the first couple of lines.  No 
offense to those who originally sounded it out.  (Not sure of the 
chords on those missing lines; I've never been able to get the verses 
to sound right.)
