                Fortress Around Your Heart  STING
                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  from the album:
                                            Dream of the Blue Turtles

 This is my second posting so my explanations may not be all that good.
 Nevertheless, I hope you will enjoy playing this great Sting classic.

 Intro:

 Riff #1

 e-10-10-10-8-8-5-5-8-8-|     play this a total of 4 times.
 B----------------------|
 G----------------------|
 D----------------------|
 A----------------------|
 E----------------------|


 Part A: play riff #1 throughout the section below.

 Under the ruins of a walled city
 Crumbling towers in beams of yellow light
 No flags of truce, no cries of pity
 The siege guns have been pounding all through the night


 Riff #2

 E-9-9-9-8-8-6-6-8-8-|       play this a total of 2 times
 B-------------------|
 G-------------------|
 D-------------------|
 A-------------------|
 E-------------------|


 Part B: play riff #2 throughout the section below.

 It took a day to build the city
 We walked through the streets in the afternoon


 Riff #3:

 E-9-9-9-7-7-4-4-7-7-|        play this a total of 4 times.
 B-------------------|
 G-------------------|
 D-------------------|
 A-------------------|
 E-------------------|


 Part C: play riff #3 throughout the section below.

 As I returned across the fields I'd known
 I recognized the walls that I once made
 I had to stop in my tracks for fear
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid


 Chorus:

    Dm          C           Am            C
 And if I built this fortress around your heart

    Dm       C      Am              C
 Encircled you in trenches and barbed wire

    Dm       C       Am             C
 Then let me build a bridge, for I cannot fill the chasm

    Dm     c     Am         c
 And let me set the battlements on fire


 Part D: play riff #1 throughout the section below.

 Then I went off to fight some battle
 That I'd invented inside my head


 Part E: play riff #2 throughout the section below.

 Away so long for years and years
 You probably thought or even wished that I was dead


 Part F: play riff #3 throughout the section below.

 While the armies all are sleeping
 Beneath the tattered flag we made
 I had to stop in my tracks for fear
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 Repeat Chorus

 Part G: play riff #1 throughout the section below.

 This prison has now become your home
 A sentence you seem prepared to pay

 Part H: play riff #2 throughout the section below.

 It took a day to build the city
 We walked through it's streets this afternoon

 Part I: play riff #3 throughout the section below.

 As I returned across the lands I'd known
 I recognized the fields where I'd once played
 I had to stop in my tracks fear
 Of walking on the mines I'd laid

 Repeat Chorus


 Go back to intro riff.


 Whew! That was harder to explain than I thought. Your comments or
 corrections would be greatly appreciated.

 P.S. Also I'd like to get my hands on any tablature for Sting,
        Van Halen, and the Rolling Stones,

                                            Thanks.

Sorry fella but Chorus chords are a bit wrong. Can't remember the key but in Em it goes: Em / D(with F# bass) / G / Am / D.
Cheers.
