"Five To One"
set tempo
5 to 1
The Doors

riff 1

five to one baby, one in five
no one here gets out alive, now
you get yours baby i'll get mine
gonna make it baby if we try

riff 2 (ad lib)

the old get old the young get stronger
may take a week, may take longer
they got the guns, but we got the numbers
gonna win, yeah, we're taking over


this solo really kicks.  the opening riff was borrowed by
pearl jam and can also be seenin the "alive" solo.  Mike
Mccready just moved the riff down on the fretboard
(to start on E).

it is in an Am pentatonic

the start is

the rest is just playing around with that scale

then back to riff 1

your ballroom days are over baby
night is crawling near
shadows of the evening
crawl across the year
you walk across the floor
with a flower in your hand
trying to tell me no one understand
trading your dollars for a hand full of dimes
gonna make it baby, in our prime

get together 1 more time
with another solo

good job on the stuff you tabbed, but there's a lot more stuff in the song than you tabbed.
