                Okay, so I know this isn't really an Aerosmith song, per se.
Nonetheless, it was written by Steven Tyler and it is included in an
Aerosmith box set. I think those are good enough reasons for putting it in
the Aerosmith section of OLGA instead of starting a new file for "Chain
Reaction." Anyway, here it is, like it or not.
        This should be pretty accurate. If you don't think so, send
Have fun with it.

"I can't ever forget how excited I was about being in an actual recording
band. It was a total dream come true. The other side of it is that it's a
pretty lame song. I never got a cent. So that was my first taste of
'shysterism.'"
                                     -Steven Tyler

Repeat that riff where appropriate. It's pretty much evident throughout the
