        Copy and Paste to your PC word processor. 
Works best if you do one section at a time in Courier font at 10 Pt.                                           
          
Section 1. Introduction - including the right hand Tab.
           then next section 2.- Verse begins - including the lyrics 
           and so on.  I've included underscores in spacing to keep 
           in memory during transfer.  Everything should line up for you.
