Cities on Flame ( With Rock and Roll )

Key of A so F# Blues type runs work great. Try the CBA + GF#E type triplets
in the leads. Also choose small three note riffs from the Blues scales and
try little with the arpeggio of open A.

R = rest
*** = triplet

Main Riff

    F#m

      F#m                                        Em
Three thousand guitars they seem to cry.      My ears will melt and then


               D                          A              Bm
my eyes.  So,  let the girl let that girl rock and roll. Cities on Flame
               (play D full and emphasis F# and E-first string with chord)

                        F#m
now,      with rock and roll.

Single Notes:

My heart is    black      and my lips  etc.
