[Verse 3] 

Guitar one plays the above riff (as always)
And I transposed the piano to guitar

(C5)          (Ab5)               (Bb5)
...risin up, straight to the top
                      (C5)

(C5)               
...went the distance
       (Ab5)

      (Bb5)                   (C5)
just a man and his will to survive
