Subject: TAB: "River" by Mother Hubbard

"River" by Mother Hubbard.
>From the album "You Me Him She."

Transcribed by Daniel Meijer


OK this is a repost - 2/11/96! Now that the the album is out, I could fix 
up the dodgy lyrics. Thanks for the lyric sheet guys :-)


---------
A great song, it goes off live. Yes its pretty "Grungy" but if you're 
gonna listen to grunge, listen to the Aussie stuff! Its better than lots 
of mass-marketed American music of similar genre.

Some of my lyric transcriptions look like they're done by the Dodgy 
Brothers ("50 bucks Jane!"*) so corrections are welcome. [Ah-ha, fixed 
now :-)]

Its in 4/4.
