THE WALL OF DEATH
Richard Thompson

(12 string is played capoed 2nd fret,
chords are written here at concert pitch.
Play rhythm part with lots of suspensions
and D scale runs, especially on the A and D chords)

[Intro] 
A D A D A D A D

[Verse 1]

       A                   D              A   Asus4 A
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time
A A/G# F#m                 D              E
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time
        D
You can waste your time on the other rides
    E
but this is the nearest to being alive
A      F#m         D              E       A   Asus4 A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death

[Verse 2]
       A                   D              A   Asus4 A
You can go with the crazy people in the crooked house
A A/G# F#m                 D              E
You can fly away on the rocket or spin in the mouse
D
The tunnel of love might amuse you
E
And Noah's Ark might confuse you but
A       F#m      D            E           A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death

[Bridge]
       F#m       C#m
On the Wall of Death
        F#m      C#m      Bm
All the World is far from me
       F#m      C#m
On the Wall of Death
        F#m         C#m   D     E
It's the nearest to being free

[Verse 3]
A                                   D                A
Well you're going nowhere when you ride on the carousel
A A/G# F#m                   D                             E
And maybe you're strong, but what's the good of ringing a bell
D
The switchback will make you crazy
E
Beware of the bearded lady
A         F#m         D           E      A
Oh let me take my chances on the Wall of Death

[Solo  ]     
F#m       C#m
F#m       C#m      Bm
F#m       C#m
F#m       C#m      D     E

[Outro]
       A                   D              A   Asus4 A
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time
A A/G# F#m                 D              E
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time
        D
You can waste your time on the other rides
    E
but this is the nearest to being alive
A      F#m         D              E       A   Asus4 A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death
A      F#m         D              E       A   Asus4 A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death
A      F#m         D              E       A   Asus4 A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death
A      F#m         D              E       D   F#m  A   F#m  E   A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death

This is what I hear:

An F#m in the last line of the verse:

A F#m D E A Asus4 A
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death

Chorus:

F#m C#m
On the Wall of Death
F#m C#m Bm
All the World is far from me
F#m C#m
On the Wall of Death
F#m C#m D E
It's the nearest to being free
