Soldier's Poem - Muse


Hi.  After seeing many incorrect tabs of "Soldier's Poem" by Muse, I
decided to sit down and figure it out myself.  There are a lot of parts
on the record where the bass and guitar harmonize, and one clearly stands
out.  So,while this may not be the exact transcription of the guitar
part on the recording, it's as close as you can get with one guitar.

Enjoy!

Standard tuning, no capo.

Repeat Part A for the following lyrics:

How could you send
us all far away from home
when you know damn well
that this is all
I would still lay down my life for you and do
you think you deserve your freedom
