One note - I used quarter notes for the rhythm throughout because each verse is a little different. However, the notes are not sung in a strict rhythm as notated. Feel free to lengthen one and shorten another as the lyrics seem to dictate.

I'll set the lyrics in a NoteWorthy file and get the NWC to Joe and MIDI to Alan.
