Date: Sat, 20 Jan 1996 04:51:29 -0600

Subject: b/beatles/back_in_the_ussr.crd

Differences from the versions already archived:

- adds chords to intro
- adds chords to bridge
- indicates chords played as rock-n-roll shuffles (5ths)
- adds chord markers for chorus riffs in Paul Zimmerman's version.  If memory serves me correctly, these riffs are correct.  Kudos to him for getting the bridge chords right!

Have a blast playing this!
