                              Don't Tread On Me
                          by: The Mighty Metallica


This song isn't in OLGA, or wasn't anyways..., so I thought I'd post it for
you die-hards out there who just have to know how to play every Metallica
song ever.  It's not terribly difficult, so here it goes.

                           Tablature Explanation
     p.m. - palm muting
     ^    - bend, above the staff is the amount of bend
            F - full step     1/2 - half step    2 - two steps...
     tr~~~- trill between note and note in paranthesis
     H    - Hammer on
     P    - Pull off

     Note, in part of the solo, i placed the Hammer ons and pull offs
       above the staff to make reading easier.  I also used lower case
       and upper case for the same reason.  There is no difference in 
       the meanings.

                   tail.          So be it,


Lyrics:

Liberty of death, what we so proudly hail.
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail.
Never begins is, never but once engaged,
never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage.
Say, Don't tread on me.

Chorus
So be it, threaten no more.
To secure peace is to prepare for war.
So be it, settle the score.
Touch me again for the words that you will hear evermore.

Don't tread on me

Love it or leave it, she, with the deadly bite.
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as the lightning strike.
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance.
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance.
Say, Don't tread on me.


  Welp, I hope you guys like it.  Took me a while, but a figure it's worth
  it to keep all the Metalli-friends jamming.  Oh, don't give me any crap
  about not putting in the Rythem section under the solo... It's not perfect
  but it's as close as care to come....  Hopefully, I'll be sending more
  stuff your way soon.
