Tabbed by: axe victim

Email: leave a message on my  Ultimate Guitar  profile.

Another tune from the  Modern Music  album.  Some of the lead parts 
are tabbed, especially the solo at the end, but I haven't attempted 
the 'reverse' guitar part in the middle.

Lyrics:


The cup of sorrow overflows...
Nothing shows , no nothing glows,
But my soul is all at sea...
The night has had it's way with me...

This game is growing rather grim...
And some of us must sink or swim
But I'll play the sailor brave...
From the cradle to my grave...

'Cause you're the gold at the ned of ny rainbow,
The ghost with the silver smile...
You're the gold at the end of my rainbow...
Oh, won't you stay with me,
Please won't you stay with me,
Oh, won't you stay with me awhile...

Our enemies are at the gate...
Well armed with jealousy and hate...
But my sword is in my hand
And I will fight at your command...

The storm is raging in my head...
The things I've done, 
The words I've said...
Never change your skies to grey...
For I will chase the clouds away,

'Cause you're the gold at the ned of ny rainbow,
The ghost with the silver smile...
You're the gold at the end of my rainbow...
Oh, won't you stay with me,
Please won't you stay with me,
Oh, won't you stay with me awhile...


Word and music by Bill Nelson.

I tabbed the reversed parts at the beginning and between the verses. The first one is actually a reversed transcription of the original non-reversed bit, and the second I did straight from the recording.

This needs a lot of interpretation to get close to the sound on record:

| p pull-off
| x Mute note
| / slide up
| \ slide down
| b bend
| r relax bend
| pb pre-bend
