Subject: Devil's Dance - Metallica



                    METALLICA-DEVIL'S DANCE
                    -----------------------
                        Transcribed by 
                     Christopher J. Rizzo

                           11/13/97

This is based on the track from ReLoad. This is in 4/4 time but parts
of it have a strong swing feel. Also notice the guitars are tuned at 
standard pitch except for the low E string which is tuned down to D. 
Remember for the best crunch down-pick EVERYTHING! The lyrics are
at the end of the tab.

LYRICS:

Yeah, I feel you too
Feel, those things ya do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns just for you
That's running through
deep inside you know, seeds I plant will grow 

    One day we'll see
    The Dance come down to me
    Yeah come on come on now take the chance
    That's right
    Lets dance 

Snake, I am the snake
Tempting, that bite you take
Let me make your mind, leave yourself behind
Be not afraid
I've got what ya need, hunger I will feed 

    One day we'll see
    The dance come down to me
    Come on, come on now take a chance
    haha! 
    Come dance

Come dancin'
(solo)

    One day you will see
    The dance come down to me
    Come on, come on now take a chance
    
(more solo) 

Yeah, I feel you too
Feel, those things you do
In your eyes I see a fire that burns just for you
Thats running through
Deep inside you know, seeds I plant will grow 

   One day you'll see
   The dance come down to me
   Come on, come on now take a chance
   That's right
   Let's dance!
