G	     C		    G	   C 	         G
   There's a big black heart, in a big black hole
        C            G		         C	      G     
   In a big black box, a the bottom, of the big black sea
F#4		 G	    F#4   G
   And there's a long black road ahead
A7sus4, D2          (Intro Riff, then Interlude #)
        Waiting for me...

INTERLUDE 1: (used after verse 1) 
G, C, G, G
G, C, G, G 
F#4, G, F#4, G
A7sus4, D2, G
(play all lines again, then go to 2nd verse)

INTERLUDE 2: (used after verses 2 & 3 and also repeated for ending)
G, C, G, G
G, C, G, G 
F#4, G, Bb4, G4
A7sus4, D2, G
(play all lines again, then go to 3rd verse -or- repeat 2 more times for ending and fade out)

PICKING PROGRESSION: (example of where to finger for each chord during song)
   For "C" Only    For "G"/"A7sus4"/"D2"   For "F#4"/"Bb4"/"G4"

*For the intro and first two lines of the verses and interludes, you are NOT
going to play: G, C, G, C, but it is G, C, G, G...do not play a second "C" in
there, there is only 1 "C" note in that progression, it does not alternate back
to "C" again on the 4th note, just G, C, G, G (you may want to try a variation on
the finger picking in the last G to kind of give and audible cue as to an end to
the riff, or moving on to the verses, etc...)

*Although this is played on two guitars, it is written this way for one
guitar...the notes: "F#4", "Bb4", "G4", and "A7sus4" are all played by the second
guitar whenever applicable in the song, while the first guitar keeps playing the
intro riff...but since both parts are so minor I combined them, because this song
can be played on one guitar, and still sound great.

*Even though the song fades out, I like playing the end gradually slowing down
interlude 2 the final repetition, and ending with one downward strum on the G
chord after picking the last G; just a thought to make the end sound good while
not ending too abruptly.
