The Head and the Heart
"Down In The Valley"
The Head and the Heart 2011

I've been meaning to tab this song since i figured it out a few weeks ago. bought the 
album and have been listening like crazy so i just had to get this song down.
i figured it was my duty to get it to the masses now. i tabbed this out mostly by ear 
the song, granted it may be hard to get the timing right due to the tricky hammer-ons.
nonetheless, i am going to tab it out for you all to enjoy!


first allow me to tab out some of the music, then i will put the chords along with the words
