You Were There - Avalon 

This was originally played on keyboard so it's just my interpretation of the CD
version using guitar. I capo’d the first fret and played it in D. Uncapo’d, it
is in the key of Eb, which is high for the guys to sing - near the end - so I’ve
tried to transpose it to an Ab (with second fret capo’d, it’s played as a G) but
it gets a little difficult to play. E-mail me at to get the
transposed version or to get the chords with lyrics.
