Fools
(Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)
>From "Fireball", 1971
intro 1:
e|------------------------------------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------------------------------------
G|------------------------------------------------------------------
D|-------------------------------------------------4-2--------------
A|----------------7\4--2/4------7\4--------------------4------------
E|--4/7--4/7--4/7-----------4/7------7\4--2/4-7\4---------4/7-------


intro 2 (fingerpick):
e|---------------                -------
B|---------------                ---0---
G|--------4------    adding some -4---4- unisono variations
D|-----4-----4---                -------
A|--2------------                -------
E|---------------                -------
   (troughout)

I'm crying --   I'm dying

verse 1:
e|-------------------------------------------              ---------
B|-------------------------------------------              ---------
G|-------------------------------------------  last one    ---------
D|------7/9---7/9---7---------7/9---7--------  ending with ---------
A|--9---5/7---5/7---5-9---9---5/7---5-7-9\---              --7------
E|--7-----------------7---7-----------5-7\---              --5------

I can see what's wrong with me --  It's in my head
I can see what's gonna be --       As I lie in my bed
Man is not my brotherhood --       I am of the dead

e|----------------------------------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------------------------------5---
G|-----------------------------------------------------------(7)b9
D|----------------------------7-----------------------------------
A|-----------------------7h9----7---5-4-5-4h5p4-------------------
E|--5-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-7--------------------------5-7--10-9\0-------

                     I died as I lived as I loved and was born
                                           On some distant hill
                     The reasons to hide were the reasons I cried
                                           Fools pass laughing still

verse 2:
There can be bad blood in all I can see --  It's in my brain
You don't know the pain I feel --           As I must live again
Rocks and stones can't bruise my soul but tears will leave a stain

They smile to themselves as they lay down my head
On some distant hill
The blind and the child sweep a tear from their eye
Fools smile as they kill

Ritchie's solo, done with volume knob acrobatics, bit tricky:

verse 3:
I got my own way to go and now I want -- To take your minds
I believe if you could see --            The blood between the lines
I believe that you could be --           A better kind

Please lead the way so the unborn can play
On some greener hill
Laugh as the flames eat their burning remains
Fools die laughing still
Henry Leyh
