Listen
(For strumming pattern, tie the last strum of every 2nd bar over to the next bar,
as can be seen at the & of beat 8 / beat 9)

[Intro Verse] 

(listen for picking pattern- basically thumb the bass note then pick the 
rest of the strings)

A
In all you'll see;
          F
Was it that came down on me that night?
A                             F
 A conjury, I held on to that moment in black

Just to make it alive...

Verse strumming intro
   F  Am  G  Am2
e|-0--0---0---0---|
B|-1--1---3---0---|
G|-2--2---4---5---|
D|-3--2---5---7---|
A|-3--0---5---7---|
E|-1--0---3---0---|

*Note you hammer onto, then pull off of normal [Am] between the F's
      you play the [Am2] quickly when changing to the G [you slide the whole F up to the G]

F                                 [Am]   F
You sit out there in the coverin'-
F                                 [Am2]  G
In the baskings of the holy night
G                            Am   G
And I was lucid and conscious
G                            F
And hovering like a firefly
F                                 [Am]   F
I’m lying stretched out on the canopy
F                                 [Am2]  G
It put it's arms out slow
G                            Am   G
And I heard the whispers of silence
G
Floating down from the radio


[Chorus]

F
So come on, come on I'm ready now
                                             G
I got the feeling honey like I'm ready to roll... [ohhh]
F
You see I’m not gonna wait till the end of me
                                                G
Cause I got the burning fire in the bed of my soul [ahhhh ohhh]


[Verse 2]

I saw the light from a kettle gun
16 days under a Southern Sun
And there were times when I thought that
I wouldn't mind it if I lost my mind out there
You wouldn't believe me if I told you so
The things I saw were enough to make the man in me a man in me
Mmm make a man of me


[Chorus 2]

F
So come on, come on I’m ready now
                                                   G
Go get your things out honey, let’s get ready to roll...
F
Oh I can feel the wave coming over me
                                                            G
I’ve been waiting for this day too long just to let it all go...


[Bridge]

F
As a child I was wonder-eyed
Am
At the thought that I might know
F                           C      G
A life in the ecstasy of rock’n'roll O-oh-oh ...
F
Now taking it slow... I’m an arrow in a bow...
                              G
You’d think that I would know... What it is that makes me roll...


[Chorus]

F
So come on, come on I'm ready now
                                             G
I got the feeling honey like I'm ready to roll... [ohhh]
F
You see I’m not gonna wait till the end of me
                                                G
Cause I got the burning fire in the bed of my soul [ahhhh ohhh]
