                             by Iron Maiden
                         Tabbed by John Twynam (wratchild@geocities.com)


This is the intro riff (both guitars):

E-------------------|------------------|------------------|-------------|
B-------------------|------------------|------------------|-------------|
G---9--------11-----|--12--------------|------------------|-------------|
D---9--------11-----|--12--------7--9--|--10--------9-----|-------------|

D---9--------7-----|--9--------7-----|----------------------------------|
A---7--------5-----|--7--------5-----|----------------------------------|
E------------------|-----------------|----------------------------------|

Then some harmony starts (2 guitars - one plays the upper notes, the
other plays the lower notes):

E------|------------------|--------------------|------------------------|
B---7--|--8--------10-----|--12--------13--15--|------------------------|
G---7--|--9--------11-----|--12--------14--16--|------------------------|

E-----------------------|----------------------|-------------------|----|
B---15^-------15h17p15--|--13--------15p13\12--|--10--------12-----|----|
G---16^-------16h17p16--|--14--------16p14\12--|--11--------12-----|----|

E-----------------------|----------------------|-------------------|----|

E-----------------------|-------------------|------|--------------------|
B---13--------13^---13--|--12--------10-----|--12--|--------------------|
G---14--------14^---14--|--12--------11-----|--12--|--------------------|
D-----------------------|-------------------|------|--------------------|
A-----------------------|-------------------|------|--------------------|
E-----------------------|-------------------|------|--------------------|

Then the rhythm guitar plays this (twice):

E---------------------------------------------------|-------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|-------------------|
G---9---9-9-9-9---9-9-9-9---9-9-9-11-11-11-11-11-11-|-------------------|

A---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------|-------------------------|

Then it goes back and plays the part with the harmony again. Here's the
solo (I'm not sure if I got all the bar lines in the right place):
