                              I Am The Sword

                                Motorhead

A modern Motorhead classic from the album Bastards.
This should actually be a tab, but I can't be bothered to tab 
out the exact rhythm for the chorus.

Tune down to Eb/D# (half a step)

-Verse1-
Riff A       Riff A
Murder I am, you know it was me
Riff A          Riff A
I was the one , that you didn't see
Riff A         Riff A
I was the cut, down to your bone
Riff A          Fill A
I put you there under that stone

-Chorus1-
F#I         A     E                      B
I, I am the blade, I am the dream of the brave
F#I         A     E                      B
I, I am the knife, I bring grief to your wife
A           E     F#II      G           E
I, I am the sword, I am the word of the Lord

Riff A x 7
Fill A

-Verse2-
Do what you will, I bring you the edge
I am the one to sever your head
I cut so deep, I can cut straight
It all depends on the moves you make

-Chorus2-
F#I         A     E                 B
I, I am the blade, I am the promise unmade
F#I         A     E                      B
I, I am the knife, I bring death to your life
A           E   F#II         G            E
I, I am the axe, to stop you dead in your tracks
A           E     F#II         G           E
I, I am the sword, I bring the fear of the Lord

Riff A x 7
Fill A

-Verse3-
Centuries pass, dust in the wind
I shall remain, shining in sin
The metal I am, the iron you feel
The song of the dead, the chorus of steel

-Chorus3-
I, I am the blade, I break the oath that you made
I, I am the mace, I am the blow in the face
I, I am the axe, to cut down heroes like rats
I, I am the sword, I do the work of the Lord

DA DA DA E (fade to end- play at least 12 times)
