This is a transcript I made of "Back to the Old House" by the Smiths.  It's from the
acoustic version from "Hat Full of Hollow". The notes on the high e string are 
heavily emphasized and ring loudly.  This should be pretty close to the recording,
though there are a few notes different here and there.
