                             EPITAPH - King Crimson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Lupin Zygzak


[Verse]
     Em            D
The wall on which the prophets wrote
   Am              B
Is cracking at the seams.
 Em         D      
Upon the instruments of death
Am                    B
The sunlight brightly gleams.
Em                D
When every man is torn apart
Am                  B
With nightmares and with dreams,
     Em         D
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
Am                  B
When silence drowns the screams.


[Chorus]
Em                   Bm
Confusion will be my epitaph.
     Em              Bm   
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
      Em                 Bm
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.

      C                    Bm   
But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
      C                    Bm 
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
      C                    B
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying


[Verse]
  Em           D
Between the iron gates of fate,
Am                 B
The seeds of time were sown,
    Em           D
And watered by the deeds of those
    Am         B
Who know and who are known;
Em            D
Knowledge is a deadly friend
   Am           B
If no one sets the rules.
    Em            D
The fate of all mankind I see
   Am              B
Is in the hands of fools.


(instrumental part)


[Verse]
     Em            D
The wall on which the prophets wrote
   Am              B
Is cracking at the seams.
 Em         D      
Upon the instruments of death
Am                    B
The sunlight brightly gleams.
Em                D
When every man is torn apart
Am                  B
With nightmares and with dreams,
     Em         D
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
Am                  B
When silence drowns the screams.


[Chorus]
Em                   Bm
Confusion will be my epitaph.
     Em              Bm   
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
      Em                 Bm
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.

      C                    Bm   
But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
      C                    Bm 
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying


Repeat the chords of the chorus 'til the end.

Have fun!

Sounds very good! I just think that, in order for it to fit with the arpeggiated chords, the D/F# chord sounds better (and darker!), instead of D.
Suggestion: 2x0232 (F# w/ thumb)

Great job! I do agree with Biller 25 about the addition of the F# bass note with the D chord. Also I find the switch to the Am from the C slightly jarring and think it sounds better if you just pull the middle finger from the C chord instead at that point, turning the E note to a d note which follows the melody.
