Subject: TAB:"When I Needed You" by Aerosmith

Okay, so I know this isn't really an Aerosmith song, per se.

Nonetheless, it was written by Steven Tyler and it is included in an

Aerosmith box set. I think those are good enough reasons for putting it in

the Aerosmith section of OLGA instead of starting a new file for "Chain

Reaction." Anyway, here it is, like it or not.

This should be pretty accurate. If you don't think so, send

corrections to meunier.1@osu.edu Comments and questions are also welcome.

Have fun with it.

"I can't ever forget how excited I was about being in an actual recording

band. It was a total dream come true. The other side of it is that it's a

pretty lame song. I never got a cent. So that was my first taste of

'shysterism.'"

-Steven Tyler
