Subject: Improved Tab: Solsbury Hill; P. Gabriel
 
The song IS in the key of B, but the capo should be on the FOURTH fret
rather than the second.  It makes it sound a lot better!  The chords of the
instrumental bits tend to be rapidly arpeggiated (perhaps they're
finger-picked, but I do better flat-picking quickly...), and the chords of
the verses are strummed, with some light appregiation prior to each vocal
phrase.  [The vertical bars represent phrases, not actual measures].

                Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
                                        Em     D     Em
                I could see the city lights
                                        Em     D     Em
          Wind was blowing, time stood still

                 Eagle flew out of the night

                 He was something to observe

              Came in close, I heard a voice
                                               Em     D     Em
             Standing stretching every nerve

                           Had to listen had no choice  I did not believe the
           information
               D               Cmaj7
              [I] just had to trust imagination
                D        Cmaj7
               My heart going boom boom boom

              "Son," he said   "Grab your things, I've come to take you
home."


[Instrumental]

Section A (1X), then Section B (1X)


[Verse]

To keep in silence I resigned
My friends would think I was a nut
Turning water into wine
Open doors would soon be shut
So I went from day to day
Tho' my life was in a rut
'Til I thought of what I'd say
Which connection I should cut
I was feeling part of the scenery
I walked right out of the machinery
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" he said "Grab your things
         I've come to take you home."


[Instrumental]

Section A (1X), then Section B (1X)


[Verse]

When illusion spin her net
I'm never where I want to be
And liberty she pirouette
When I think that I am free
Watched by empty silhouettes
Who close their eyes but still can see
No on taught them etiquette
I will show another me
Today I don't need a replacement
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant
My heart going boom boom boom
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things,
          they've come to take me home."
