Led here by fate

Went down on his knees

Reached up to the skies

They say at night

You hear him plead

With the devil below, for his soul's release

Chorus (2x):
F#m
So tear down the walls
F7
Storm through the barricades
Bm
There's fight in every corner
F#m
And a night to everyday

Solo 2:
F Minor Pentatonic


That's the bare bones of it.
Tips:
You must listen to the song to get a feel for the song.
The chorus is a choppy part where Davy alternates between downstrokes on the bottom 
and upstrokes on the top strings. Use chunky distortion to get the right sound.
The F7 chord has a little slide in it from the third to the fourth fret during the choruses.
In the verses, strum the chords and arpeggiate the top three strings.
The verses are played with a delay-type pedal which and slight tremolo effects.
For the solos, improvise dramatically.
Have fun, this is a great, impressive song.

PLEASE CHECK OUT BACK DOOR SLAM!

This is a pretty good tab except that during the intro and chorus he's playing a C#7 chord
