Cherokee Boogie
---------------------
Performed by: BR5-49
Written by:Moon Mullican and Chief William Redbird
Tabbed by: Jeff Gary
Disclaimer:  I don't know what the Indian words are, so I wrote them as
close as possible to what it sounds like.  The solos are not perfect and
neither are the chords, but neither am I.  The (G7) means that it can be
played either as a G or G7.  Listen to the CD to see if you think you should
put it in and if you shouldn't.
