Ahhh Finally I have had the guts to do it. My first tab!!!
I have been working on this tab for about six months. 
I would love to know what you think or any additions to this tab to make it sound perfect!
Why are Dead Can Dance tabs so scarce anyways?

The timing is all in the song- it seems to move faster as it goes along! 

Uhhhh- this song makes me soooo happy.


Intro

C/G         Cm     C/G       Asus (without D string held throughout song)
C/G         Cm     C/G D Dsus D
C/G         Cm     C/G       Asus 
C/G         Cm     C/G D Dsus D



C/G         Cm     C/G       Asus 
I need my conscience to keep watch over me


C/G         Cm     C/G D Dsus D   
To protect me from myself

C/G         Cm     C/G       Asus 


So I can wear honesty like a crown on my head


C/G         Cm     C/G         D (quick move to back Asus before switching back to C/G throughout song)

When I walk into the promised land



C/G     Cm     C/G       Asus 

We've been too long American dreaming


C/G         Cm     C/G       D  
And I think we've all lost the way

C/G Cm  C/G Asus 
Forlorn somnambulistic 

C/G    Cm C/G    D 
maniacal in the dark


C/G     Cm   C/G      Asus    
I'm in love with an American girl

C/G       Cm  C/G       D  Dsus D
Well she's my best friend

C/G Cm   C/G      Asus 
I love her surreptitious smile

C/G             Cm  C/G   D 
That hides the pain within her

C/G       Cm      C/G      Asus 

And we'll go dancing in the rings of laughter

C/G       Cm  C/G       D  

And live along by the shores

C/G  Cm   C/G   Asus 

Forlorn in the rounds of raputurous 

C/G       Cm  C/G       D 
live along for the loss ( my best guess on lyrics)

D               Dsus     D Asus  C/G Cm C/G C/G CM C/G
Yeah-ee, on the lea the rising wind blows

D               Dsus     D Asus  C/G Cm C/G C/G CM C/G
Fay-hee, on the lea the rising wind blows

C/G CM       C/G

How long how long?

C/G Cm C/G Cm C/G 
C/G Cm Asus ( very fast _ listen to song _ fingers should be bleeding by now)
C/G Cm C/G Cm C/G 
C/G Cm D



C/G  Cm   C/G   Asus 
Forlorn in the rounds of allegiance 

C/G       Cm    C/G   D 
says we've left behind ( again best guess!)


C/G    Cm   C/G    Asus 
Turned back by the foot of the doorway

C/G    Cm  C/G   D 
Never lost and found

C/G     Cm     C/G       Asus 
We've been too long American dreaming
C/G     Cm     C/G          D 
I think we've all lost the heart

C/G  Cm   C/G   Asus 
Forlorn somnambulistic 

C/G      Cm  C/G   D 

maniacal in the dark

D               Dsus     D Asus  C/G Cm C/G C/G CM C/G
Yeah-ee, on the lea the rising wind blows
D               Dsus     D Asus  C/G Cm C/G 
Fay-hee, on the lea the rising wind blows

C/G CM        C/G
How long how long?

C/G Cm C/G Cm C/G 
C/G Cm Asus (put tape on bloody stumps!)
C/G Cm C/G Cm C/G 
C/G Cm D
