this is the intro from Pink Floyd's "The Nile Song" which was released in 1969 on Music 
the film More. This is my first time tabbing a song so dont expect perfection. If anyone 
any comments or corrections feel free to email me at sydbrown1970@yahoo.com

sounds best when using distortion. just do it fast and loud!

lyrics by Roger Waters (1969)

I was standing by the Nile, when i saw the lady smile
I would take her out for a while, for a while
Like tears that like a child, how her golden hair was blowing wild
then she spread her wings to fly, far to fly
soaring high above the breezes, going always where she pleases
she will make it to the island in the sun
i will follow in her shadow, as i watch her from my window,
one day i will catch her
she is calling from the deep, summoning my soul to endless sleep
she is bound to drag me down, drag me down

thats pretty much it from what i hear. i will eventually tab out the middle section and 
if anyone has it already maybe we can tab it out.
