__I am a man who walks alone, and when I'm walking a dark road

               Bb                 C       Bb C  D
at night or strolling through the park

         Bb              C                   F      G      D
When the lights begin to change, I sometimes feel a little strange

         Bb                C
a little anxious when it's dark

C               Bb     C               D     C
___ Fear of the dark ,____ Fear of the dark,____

         Bb                 F           G      D
I have a constant fear that something's always near

            Bb     C               D      C
Fear of the dark, ____ Fear of the dark, ____

         Bb          F         G      D
I have a phobia that someone's always there


[Chorus] (w/distortion)

E|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|-----------------------------------------|x3
D|-----7-7-5-5-7-7-----7-7-5-5-7-7-|-----------------5-5---------------------|

E|---------------------------------|-5-5-------------------------------------|



[Verse]


        The verse has the same chords that the part above, but they're
played with distortion. Hear very carefully the song so you can catch
the rhythm.

Here are the lyrics:

Have you run your fingers down the wall
And have you felt your neck skin crawl
When you're searching for the light
Sometimes when you're scared to take a look
At the corner of the room
You've sensed that something's watching you


[Solo]

(The easy part)

E|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|-7--7-7-9-10-9~-10-9-7--7--------------------|
D|--------------------------10-8--8-7-5-7^-7~--|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|-7--7-7-9-10-9~-10-9-7--7----------5-7~------|
D|--------------------------10-8-7-5-----------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------8---------------8-------------------------------------------|
G|---7~---7-9-10---10-9---7-9-10---10-9--7-----------------------------------|
D|-7----7---------------7------------------10-7-7^-7~------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------8---------------8--------------10^-10~----------------------|
G|---7~---7-9-10---10-9---7-9-10---10-9--7-----------------------------------|
D|-7----7---------------7------------------10-7------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


{Solo-Really-Fast-Difficult-To-Catch}

[Solo]

(Again, an easy part)

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------10-6-8~-------10-6-8-6----------------------------------------------|
G|-7-7-7---------7-7-7----------------10-7-9~-------10-7-9-5--------7-3-5----|
D|------------------------------8-8-8---------8-8-8-----------5-5-5----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------10-7-9-------7----7-5---5-7---7-5---5-------------------------------|
D|-7-7-7--------10-7--7--7-----7-----7-----7---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

        Then, comes the Chorus again, the last verse, and the outro,
that is similar to the Intro, so you can get it easy.


        If you have an idea about the Really-Fast-Solo, or if you
want to talk about another Iron Maiden's Tab, feel free to drop me
some lines about it.
