"hand of god" by soundgarden from the _fopp_ ep.

this part is all harmonics, play it through distortion and it'll
sound great. just play it as if your hand wasn't strong enough to
press down on the frets just right, you'll get very good artificial
harmonics.
 
the intro part is throughout the speech ("vanity of vanities..."
verse pt 1 is played once or twice in the beginning of the verse, 
verse pt 2 is played throughout most of the verse, with a B chord
sometimes substituted for the A chord (the A chord is marked with a *).
verse pt 3 is used at the end of the verse and during the solo, right
before the solo, it's doubled and harmonized a fourth up (same fret, next 
higher string)
 
wailing guitar throughout the beginning:

there's more, but that's all i really feel like sitting down 
and figuring out.
 
 
lyrics:
 
[now i would like, friends, this evening, we should stand there   ]
[with all other of gods creatures on the curtstone. and watch this]
[march of time; let us take our stand with them. and as we        ]
[stand there i hear one of them whispering "he is a hebrew slave,"]
[he said. "vanity of vanities, the whole thing is a vain charade; ]
[it has no meaning."                                              ]
 
ooh the hand
of god
lays high
above me 
oh he's so good
if you really
loved me
make me feel
your mighty crunch
as you run 
me out
like a wall defiled scepter
 [let it be known today that if you've got two hands you're supposed to pray]
oooh the hand
of god
is stacked
and callous
bruised 
from stones
and sticks
the hand
of god
has got 
a ring about the size of texas
maybe sleet
steadied stones
my fingers
never smelled.
 [let it be turned to see if it fits  ]
 [--stolen--whoa, then,               ]
 [don't touch anything unholy with it!]
 
 [let it be known today that if you've got two hands you're supposed to pray]


enjoy.
