Song: Journeyman
Band: Iron Maiden
Album: Dance of Death

I have borrowed some parts (like the intro chords) from the other journeyman tab. I’m
about that but it just sounded good. I also couldn’t figure out what the third guitar was
doing so I’ll just give Adrian’s and Dave’s parts. They play the same all the same
in the verse and a short solo that Adrian plays after the first chorus in death on the road.
figure that out either. =(

INTRO, Part 1 (x2):

Guitar 1:
|---------------------------------------------------|
|--1-----1-----0-----0-----3-----3-----1-----1------|

Guitar 2: (don't know the chord names)

|--------------3-----------1-----------0------------|
|--------------2-----------2-----------2------------|

|--------------x-----------x-----------x------------|
|--------------x-----------3-----------3------------|

Note: Guitar 1 plays three strings separately and guitar 2 plays a chord, when the first
is played, guitar two also plays the full chord

VERSE 1:

Before the lyrics both guitars play the chords F and then A twice. It is with the same
as with lyrics. Adrian plays the normal chords and Dave plays barre chords.

F				     A
From the red sky of the east, To the sunset in the west
F                                           A
We have cheated death and he has cheated us
F				     A
But that was just a dream, And this is what it means
F					    A
We are sleeping and we'll dream for evermore

PRE-CHORUS 1:

C		    D		     A  Asus4  A
And the fragment remains of our memories
C		    D		     G
And the shadows we made with our hands
C	            D 	             C			G
Deeper grey, come to mourn. All the colours of the dawn
C 		        	     A  Asus4  A
Will this Journeyman’s day be his last?

CHORUS (x4):

Dm			 F
I know what I want and I say what I want
C			 A#   C
And no one can take it away.

VERSE 2:

F					A
But the memory still remains. All those past years not so strange
F				       	    A
Our winter times are like a silent shroud
F				   A
And the heartbeat of the day drives the mist away
F					A
And winter's not the only dream around

PRE-CHORUS 2:
C			D		A  Asus4  A
In your life you may choose desolation
C		    D		      G
And the shadows you build with your hands
C			D		C 	       G
If you turn to the light, that is burning in the night
C		    D                A  Asus4  A
Then this Journeyman's day has begun

CHORUS x4

INTRO, part 2

PRE CHORUS 3:
C			D		A  Asus4  A
In your life you may choose desolation
C		   D		    G
And the shadows we build with our hands
C			D		C              G
If you turn to the light, that is burning in the night
C		   D		     A  Asus4  A
Then this Journeyman's day has begun

CHORUS x4

			      \----/
You can choose which G chord to use, but in my opinion the first one sounds better with
song.

I actually think that dave plays the A and F chords in the verse as "0" instead of 5 and
on the high e string.

x = mute string

thx...just have to say that some words i wrote have dissapeared. this is how it should look like...

I have borrowed some parts (like the intro chords) from the other journeyman tab. I’m SORRY about that but it just sounded good. I also couldn’t figure out what the third guitar was doing so I’ll just give Adrian’s and Dave’s parts. They play the same all the same EXCEPT in the verse and a short solo that Adrian plays after the first chorus in death on the road. COULDNT figure that out either. =(

*****on intro, part 2:****

Note: Guitar 1 plays three strings separately and guitar 2 plays a chord, when the first STRING is played, guitar two also plays the full chord.

****on chords:****

You can choose which G chord to use, but in my opinion the first one sounds better with THIS song.

I actually think that dave plays the A and F chords in the verse as "0" instead of 5 and 1 on the high e string.

*****Also, the chord letters have been moved, you can figer it out for yourself in what position they should be, they are in the right order.*****

its pretty obvious several of the chords are missplaced with the lyrics, but anyone should be able to figure it out.
