                               COOL WOODEN CROSSES
                          As recorded by Chris Whitley
                      (From the 1997 Album TERRA INCOGNITA)

Words and Music by Chris Whitley
Transcribed by Kahlon

**NOTE: The real version of this song is preformed in 
        DADADE tuning, as most Chris Whitley's songs are
        not played in standard tuning.  This version is
        my translation into standard tuning and lacks
        Chris's flare, but is sonically similar.  Good
        for those of us who (unfortunately) don't have
        the time to keep changing tunings!  Also the 
        timing is approximate, you'll get the feel once
        you start playing.  Enjoy!
