Note                            Don't let the phrasing scare you! It is easy to hear the parts in the song and 
                                    Parts A & B are 32 counts each so If you happen to miss one it's ok. A. T. & I had 
                                    fun putting this together, and we hope you have fun with It as well. -- Max Perrv
