            ENGINE 143 Version 2 (with harmonica)

Here is another version of this classic song, with a
melody tab for a C Harmonica. The numbers without the minus
sign means blow, and the ones with the minus sign means
draw(breathe in). Modify it to fit your style of preference
I play it differently than this way myself.
