School bus driver in a traffic jam.

Staring at the faces in her rear view mirror,

Looking at the promise of the promise land.

Why is this tab rated so low? It at least deserves a 9.
If you can't play something right leave it to someone who knows
what they're doing to rate it. Or at least get another opinion
before you give such a low rating!

I felt it deserved a ten. Dont know why someone would rate it a 3.
-yinielin | 2/24/2003
