Genesis - Dancing with the Moonlit Knight
from Selling England by the Pound
Transcribed by Cory (coryp23@gmail.com), March 2012
The other copies of this song are not very good. Here's a mostly
accurate chord transcription, with a few tabbed suggestions.
Go check out the guitar pro copy if you want the instrumental parts.

note: ultimate-guitar loves to rename enharmonically equivalent chords after a tab has been submitted. If I write a G#m it's going to force it to Abm.

This is the riff being repeated in the background during a lot of the song. There are small variations on it, but this is the main body of it.
