The Lyrics to this song is presented below in case you'll need them


[Chorus]

Black night is not right,
I don't feel so bright,
I don't care to sit tight.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.


[Verse]

I don't need a dark tree,
I don't want a rough sea,
I can't feel, I can't see.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.


[Chorus]

Black night, black night,
I don't need black night,
I can't see dark night.
Maybe I'll find on the way down the line
that I'm free, free to be me.
Black night is a long way from home.

when I listen to the music I hear something one octave lower at the

5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7

part, but I don't know if it's Jon or Glover. Anyway, I like to play on octave lower in my 5-string bass.

And very good tab!

The intro part That 7 on D, and the first note the 7 on A, I think you should do a hammer-on from 5, It sounds like thats that they do. So it'd be like:

|--------------------------------|
|------5-----------5---5h7-5-----|
|--5h7---7-5---5-7---7-------7---|
|------------7-------------------|

Other than that GREAT TAB 5*'s!
