Hi James:

   Pleas put this in the archives. Thanks.

Here's my attempt to transcribe "Cut to the Chase" by Rush. It might not be

Any comments or suggestions welcome.

*Play Intro and repeat verse figure with this lyrics*

It is the rocket that ignites itself
and launches its way to the stars

racing the oblivious cars

spinning off to every extreme
pure as a lover's desire
evil as a murderer's dream

* Play bridge figure *

Can't stop - moving
Can't stop - moving
Cant stop!
