VERSE 1:

E                 D
You asked me to a party,
E                      G
To a house just by the moon.
A           E       A             
You gave me silver loving,
E                   F#      D Bm
The end was all too soon.


REFRAIN 1:
| E   G | E   Bm |


VERSE 2:
Bm                  D   
You asked me to the theatre,
           E              G
In a place quite near the sun.
E                  Bm    
You gave me golden sunbeams,
E                       A E
Your act was all in fun.


CHORUS 1:
E            G D  
Rope ladder,      
E       A 
Rope ladder.
E           C      A
Rope ladder to the moon!


REFRAIN 2:
| D   E | Bm  E |


VERSE 3:
E                 D
You asked me to a meeting,
E                   G
In a cottage in the snow.
E           A
You gave me central heating,
E                       A E
I can't forget the glow.


VERSE 4:
E             F#  D   A
You asked me to a weekend,
E             F#  D   A Bm
Down by the stormy sea.
E                D   
You took me to a ceremony,
        A             C# D#  C# Bm D#
And the sacrifice was me!  - me!


REFRAIN 3:
| D   E | Bm   E |


VERSE 5:
E                 Bm
You asked me to a storm cloud,
F#                    E   G
Up near the rainbow's end.
E
Then you threw away the ladder,
            G       E      A E
And gave me to your friend.


VERSE 6:
Bm               D   
You took me to a prison,
E                 G
And you said its chief was me.
D                              A    Bm
Then you locked me deep inside you,
E         G        E      A E
And threw away the ke-e-y.


CHORUS 2:
E            G D  
Rope ladder,      
E       A 
Rope ladder.
E           C      A
Rope ladder to the moon!


REFRAIN X & CODA:
| A   E | D   G |(Guitar Flourishes)
| E   G | A   E |(Single Strum)


[End]


NOTES:
1.  This version is my own interpretation.  It’s a response to the rapid chord-play that Jack Bruce 
demonstrates in filmed live footage.  As seen in the documentary ‘Rope Ladder To The Moon’, 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZF1HrWKi68  
I trust that this TAB captures that sonic-spirit.  
2.  To Jack Bruce, who passed away a year ago in October 25, 2014, Suffolk, United Kingdom.  
Notably, it’s Full Moon, today.
3.  Various versions abound like Colosseum’s fascinating and energetic interpretation of RLTTM.
