Wild Wild Life by Talking Heads
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I grabbed John's (phys174@csc.canterbury.ac.nz) post from Nevada, listened to
the disc, made corrections, and here is the result.  This is how a bud of mine
and I play it (two guitars).  I included a rhythm and lead for each part, 
and the lyrics at the bottom (they may have errors).  There really isn't a
rhythm guitar on the album, so the rhythm part is sort of a combination of the
bass and drums. There is timing below the tab (1 + 2 + etc), I hope it helps.
If there are brackets around tab:  [-2-3-], it means to repeat what's in the
brackets.  I hope somebody else likes this tune; thanks again to John for his
original post.
