Flash back time....  OK - I said it before but I need to repeat
this disclaimer - for those of you who want exact notes/timing -
get the recording.  I learned this puppy off an 8-trk tape ~15? years
ago.  I play the intro every once in a while when I'm fooling
around, and this is how I remember it.  I'm not even sure what the
name is.... the request was for _Madam Blue_, but then during 
correspondance wrote (sweet) Madam Blue...   Anyways this is my
recollection:


Sweet Madam Blue (STYX)
(as per d.badermans hazy memory....)

Seems like I jump to 3/4 time for the next line - this is probably
not correct, so if you have a source, listen to it....

Weird notations:
 ss -> slow strum 
 ^  -> down strum
 V  -> up strum

My brain hurts -someone else posted the following, and as I can't remember the
rest of the song, I will just include it.  NOTE: I am sorry I have no idea who
submitted the following - it was forwarded to me without credits...
