Tabbed by Peter Tuyp(peter.tuyp@wxs.nl)

subject: Jim Croce - Operator

This is another nice song of Jim Croce. Usualy, the intervals between notes in my tabs
correspond with the rhythm of the song. But not in this tab, because I had to synchronize
(Gtr 1), the lyrics and (Gtr 2) all in one tab. Just listen tot the song and you'll find out
the right rhythm.
