The Lyrics To this Song are :

 Make his fight on the hill in the early day
 Constant chill deep inside
 Shouting gun, on the run through the endless grey
 On they fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?
 For a hill men would kill, why?  They do not know
 Suffered wounds test their pride
 Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
 Gone insane from the pain that they surely know

    For whom the bell tolls
    Time marches on
    For whom the bell tolls

 Take a look to the sky just before you die
 It is the last time he will
 Blackened roar massive roar fills the crumbling sky
 Shattered goal fills his soul with a ruthless cry
 Stranger now, are his eyes, to this mystery
 He hears the silence so loud
 Crack of dawn, all is gone except the will to be
 Now they see what will be, blinded eyes to see

    For whom the bell tolls
    Time marches on
    For whom the bell tolls

The letter things aren't exactly standard tab, so don't worry. The 'R's are rests and the letters above are the note durations, like quarter, whole, eighth, etc.
