Ireland - Jess Klein
Somewhat tabbed by Gene (starwares@aol.com) 12/01/01
Corrections advised and encouraged.

Capo 4th fret

4/4 time (four dashes = 1 beat, each bar has extra dash at start for 
readability) 

Some words are probably wrong 'cause I'm moving next week and I already packed the CD. The vocal phrasing is somewhat approximate wherever I could fit the words.

There's two versions of the intro here. The first is loosely based on the CD. 

The second is loosely based on how I heard Jess play it solo. The solo version has two extra bars at the end. I added some bass notes here and there 

to keep the rhythm going and some other stuff just because I liked it. The solo version is a more "straight" picking pattern and is probably easier to play. On the solo version the second C/Ebass part is more difficult than the first time around. Just play the first one again if it seems difficult or make something up. Mix and match. Have fun with it.

Also, sounds nice if you play the intro slowly, stop, and then pick up the tempo, strumming the chords when you start the verse.

Intro - CD (kinda sounds like the CD intro;end is different to create a stop)

(last verse)

	When you look at me, do you love this world, yeah
	O-or do you see, how much better it could get
