Title: smooth
Album: supernatural

I spent a while figuring this one out because the one you
have sounds nothing like the song when I hear it. This is
the long version of this song. Everything is here, from
start to finish including solo. If you are listening to
the shorter version,omit the bars that are labeled "skip"

Like seven inches from the midday sun
I hear you whisper & the words melt everyone
But you stay so cool
