--------------------------------
Deep Purple - Burn
(Blackmore/Lord/Paice/Coverdale)
From "Burn" (1974)
--------------------------------

Key:  B flat


Intro:  Gm

    Gm
The sky is red, I don't understand;
F/G
past midnight I still see the land.
  Gm
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
 C                                         Gm
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.___
The city's ablaze, the town's on fire;
     F/G
the woman's flames are reachin' higher.
Gm
We were fools, we called her "liar";
Bb  F  C       Gm     Eb   C    Gm
All I hear is "Burn!"_____________

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm;
she said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return!"
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"___
Warning came, no one cared;
earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared;
Still I hear "Burn!"______________

Dm                       Bb
     You know we had no time,
                       Am         Bb
      we could not even try,______
                         Dm      Bb/D    C/D   Gm
      You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand;
past midnight, I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned;
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared;
earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

RIFF SUGGESTION 1: (from Scott Hannon (hannon@umbc.edu)):

"Thanks for the post...since the guitar riff was omitted, here it is
(from memory, so no guarantee!)

e-----------------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------------|
g------5-3-0-5------3-3--0-5--0-3-------5-3-0-5----5-3-0----|
d------5-3-0-5------3-3--0-5--0-3-------5-3-0-5----5-3-0-3--|
a--------------------------------------------------------3--|
e---3-------------3------------------3-------------------1--|

"Use pull-offs and hammer-ons....this is basically a two finger riff."


RIFF SUGGESTION 2: (from Tomas (etxtlm@sta.ericsson.se))

"Sorry, but I think your riff is slightly incorrect. I think this is more
accurate:
(also from memory, no guarantees)"

e-----------------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------------|
g------3-2-0-5------3-2-0-5--0-3------3-2-0-5------3-2-0----|
d------3-2-0-5------3-2-0-5--0-3------3-2-0-5------3-2-0-3--|
a--------------------------------------------------------3--|
e---3-------------3------------------------------3------(1)-|


RIFF SUGGESTION 3: (from rps92@ecs.soton.ac.uk (Richard Swann))

"Well just to give my two cents' worth, I think the riff should be played
like this:

>e-----------------------------------------------------------|
>b-----------------------------------------------------------|
>g---0--3-2-0-5----0-3-2-0-5----3------3-2-0-5----0-3-2-0----|
>d---0--3-2-0-5----0-3-2-0-5----3------3-2-0-5----0-3-2-0-3--|
>a--------------------------------------------------------3--|
>e-----------------------------------------------------------|

"...but I know I play a whole load of Purple riffs differently to the way the
b'stard in black does (I know he plays Space Truckin' differently to me)"

I think you have forgotten something in the bridge:

Dm Bb
you know we had no time
C Dm F Em Am
we could not even try and so on...

And by the way.. It's G instead Of Gm at the verse I think...

Great tab!
