FmajC:  x3x210

A                                         Dmsus7
Picture yourself, Set up for good in a whole other life
       A
In the mystery zone
A
Make us a house, Some far away town
       Dmsus7                                A 
Where nobody will know us well, Where your dad's not around
A                      
And all the trouble you look for all your life
            Dmsus7                 A
You will find it for sure, In the mystery zone
A            FmajC
Times that we met
         GmajD        A
Before we met...hhmmm light on mister (?)
             FmajC  GmajD
Times that we met...hmmmm  
      A
We'll go there

      (F   *bass* G) Am and Asus(pluck through whole chorus)
To the mystery zone
      (F   *bass* G) Am and Asus
Ah the mystery zone

A                                 
There goes the rider, At gates of dawn
            Dmsus7                     A
He takes no prisoners at all, He'll be there on his own
A             
What gets him going, Off down that road
             Dmsus7                      A
Is something he don't understand, ooo the mystery zone
A
Maybe all he wants, Maybe all he needs
          Dmsus7
Is to know that the sun don't set
         A
On the mystery zone
A           FmajC          GmajD       A
How come it feels so familiar When you never been there?
A           FmajC           GmajD         A 
How come it seems so unreachable You never tried to find
A                   (F   *bass* G) Am and Asus    
Never tired to find the mystery zone
(F   *bass* G) Am and Asus
Mystery zone, oooh

(*Another verse and chorus, same stuff)

Solo: (After drum breakdown at 1:34. Play with reverb/delay):
play with bends/whammy bar
