Subject: I'm so Happy I can't stop crying by Toby Keith
Date:  November 27, 1997
Album: Dream Walkin'
Note: Thanks to Lluis Sala for album and writer information.
I taped this off the radio and it was played at a higher revolution then it was recorded in but I
think this is the correct key of the recording.  Please remember this is a rock and roll song so the
chords sequence isn't what it is in country music.  But Toby Keith does a great job on this song
and he is country.  Play it with the record.
