  All I had..

  To show me the way..

  Was the sound of music..

  From the street every day..

Chorus:
		    C#   B  B   A
  Too many people..
		    C#   B  B   A
  Not enough shelter..
		    C#   B  B   A
  The poor getting weaker..
		    C#   B  B   A
  The rich getting stronger..
		    C#   B  B   A
  I've seen everything..
		    C#   B  B   A
  I needed to see...
		    C#   B  B   A
  I got my mind made up..
		    C#   B  B   A
  To give it all away..


Verse:


  Workin' man..

  Way down south..

  Bet any moment back at the house..

  All that love..

  Couldn't hold back..

  Cause bells were ringing..

  The sky turned black..





Solo:
the prelude is a bunch of licks that are just varied versions
of the intro riff.

then play the hell out of these notes.
e---------   --------  --------  --------|
B---------   --------  --------  --------|
G-----9---   ---12---  ---16---  ---14---|
D---------   --------  --------  --------|
A---------   --------  --------  --------|
E---------   --------  --------  --------|

another snippet
e------------------------|
B------------------------|
G------12h14-------12h14-|  (repeated fast)
D--14----------14--------|
A------------------------|
E------------------------|




Lead in to big solo:

..Smokestack..               ..Smokestack..
e-------------------------------------|
B-------------------------------------|
G-----------------------12^-----------|
D-----------------12------------------|
A-----------/14-----------------------|
E-------------------------------------|
(repeat 8 times, getting softer each time)

if anyone can figure out the rest of this,
I'd be not only grateful, but amazed.
