Steam by Phish

Quick explanation of how this is laid out...
When I have a chord name listed play the riff that's listed below the chord name below 
me (except for the very last chord [G*])
for an example let's say the song is at the part where Trey is singing
"There is a tower...
You would be playing this E-------------------------|
                          B-------------------------|
                          G---------------5----3----|

Intro= SOUND OF TEAPOT STEAMING... then Gm x4

Gm
there is the tower like a solitary flower standing in the snow as the wolves all wait below
Cm
and you're walking on the ledge throwing bread crusts off the edge
Gm
as you sing in voice so clear and my name I think I hear
Fm
concealed within the theme
Cm                    Gm
then it disappears as steam

Gm
and I'm standing far below watching wolves you seem to know as your voice still carries 
on in your never-ending song
Cm
and my blood begins to boil and my bones melt into oil
Gm
hissing liquid in the snow as my body sinks below
Fm
and a ripple sends a beam
Cm                              Gm
of sunlight dancing through the steam

Gm
my now unfettered soul has direction I control to your tower I draw near but do I see a 
trace of fear?
Cm
the approaching sound of hooves now scatters all the wolves
Gm
you briefly watch the horseman ride then you quickly run inside
Fm
the rider's weapons gleam
Cm                         Gm
while the horse's nostrils steam

Gm
there's no time to reflect, who is this man? I must protect you in the rider's hand I 
see he holds your prison's only key
Cm
he glances up and glares and then he starts to climb the stairs
Gm
I can tell you're terrified so I quickly go inside
Fm
but then I hear a fateful scream
Cm                         G*
as your soul joins mine as steam

JAM!
Not exactly sure what the chords are for this I would recommend just usinf the verse 
riffs and just kind of have fun with it
(That's what Phish is all about anyway)

To get Trey's style down you really have to listen to the song check out the New Year's 
Version for the best quality on youtube.

HAVE A GREAT DAY
