A cool song off of "The Elder". I personally like alot of the playing on this album, most fans
either LOVE it or HATE it. I personally love it, It's a big stretch for KISS, but it works. This
songs is one of the best. The solo is simple and rememberable, a trademark KISS staple. It has a
riff that is similar to "Keep Me Comin" which is on the follow-up to "The Elder, "Creatures Of
The Night".

"The Oath"
        --  Paul Stanley
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.1]
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.2]

[Rhythm Fig. 2 w/end. 1]
Like a blade of a sword I am forged in flame
Fiery hot
[Rhythm Fig. 2]
Tempered steel fire-bright to the night I take
I fear not

[Rhythm Fig. 4]
   Now compelled by something I cannot see
   I go forth surrendering to history

[Rhythm Fig. 5]
     Your glory, I swear I ride for thee
     Your power, I trust it rides with me
     Your servant, I am and ever shall I be
[Rhythm Fig. 3]

[Rhythm Fig. 2 w/end. 1]
Through a dream
   I have a come to an ancient door
Lost in the mist
[Rhythm Fig. 2]
I have been there a hundred times or more
Pounding my fists

[Rhythm Fig. 4]
   Now inside, the fire of the ancient burns
   A boy goes in and suddenly a man returns

[Rhythm Fig. 5]
     Your glory, I swear I ride for thee
     Your power, I trust it rides with me
     Your servant, I am and ever shall I be

[Solo] w/[Rhythm Fig. 6]

[Rhythm Fig. 7]
I gave my word and gained a key
I gave my heart and set it free
There's no turning back from this odyssey
Because I feel so alive suddenly
And I wonder, is this really me?

[Rhythm Fig. 2 w/end. 1]
Like a blade of a sword I am forged in flame
Fiery hot
[Rhythm Fig. 2]
Tempered steel fire-bright to the night I take
I fear not

[Rhythm Fig. 4]
   Now compelled by something I cannot see
   I go forth surrendering to history

[Rhythm Fig. 5] then [Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.3] w/[Riff. 1]
     Your glory, I swear I ride for thee
     Your power, I trust it rides with me
     Your servant, I am and ever shall I be
