FAMILY HANDS (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
------------------------------------
[Recorded in F.  Mary Chapin plays in dropped-D tuning (DADGBE) in the key
 of D, with a capo on the 3rd fret.  John Jennings plays the lead part in
 C with a capo on the 5th fret (and standard tuning).]
[All the verses aren't _exactly_ the same, but they're close enough
 that I only wrote tablature for the first verse.]
[I wasn't able to write tablature for the rhythm guitar during the lead
 guitar solos, because the lead guitar gets in the way.  But I _have_
 written down the exact chord shapes she uses.]
