                    PERFECT STRANGERS -- Deep Purple          
Tabbed by: peteihis

Intro (by keyboard)

Intro (continues with the band):
|C5 D5    |     C5 D5|F5 G5    |            |

|C5 D5               |          C5 D5|F5 G5   |                  |
    Can you remember,  remember my name         as I flow through 
|C5 D5       |                    C5 D5  |F5 G5  |         |
 your life      a thousand oceans I  have flown   ooh   and
|Am        |riff_1           |Am     |riff_1  |
 cold,       cold spirits of  ice. 
|Am           |riff_1  |Am                    |       |
   All my life           I am the echo of your past

|C5 D5    |     C5 D5|F5 G5    |            |

|C5 D5             |               C5    D5|F5 G5  |               |
    I am returning,  the echo of a point in time,     distant faces 
|C5 D5     |                      C5 D5   |F5 G5   |       |
 shine        a thousand warriors I  have  known        and 
|Am       |riff_1          |Am     |riff_1   |
 laughing  as the spirits appear
|Am             |riff_1 |Am                   |       |
   all your life           shadows of another  day

    |F       |C                           |
                and if you hear me talking 
    |Dm                         |G                    |
     on the wind  you've got to  understand we must re-
    |Dm            |C         |
    -main    perfect strangers

    |G    |      |Gm     |       |

4/4               5/4
|:A5      Bb5 G5  |A5   F5 A5 G5    :| x3

|A5      Bb5 G5 |

5/4                         4/4
|A5   F5  A5      G5      F5|     E5     D5     C5       B5| 
           I know I  must remain inside this silent well of

|C5 D5     |     C5 D5|F5 G5     |            |

|C5 D5                 |         C5      D5 |F5 G5  |                       |
    A strand of silver   hanging through the sky      touching more than you
|C5 D5   |                      C5 D5 |F5 G5   |       |
 see        the voice of ages in your  mind    oooh, is 
|Am         |riff_1                |Am      |riff_1  |
 aching      with the death of the night   o - oooh  -
|Am           |riff_1      |Am                             |      |
 -aww      precious life     your tears are lost in falling rain

    |F       |C                           |
                and if you hear me talking 
    |Dm                         |G                    |
     on the wind  you've got to  understand we must re-
    |Dm            |C         |
    -main    perfect strangers

    |G    |      |Gm     |       |

4/4             5/4
|:E5      F5 D5 |E5  C5 E5  D5    :| x3

4/4             5/4             4/4
|E5      F5 D5 |E5  C5 E5 D5 C5| B5  A5  G5  F5|
4/4             5/4
|:E5      F5 D5 |E5 C5  E5  D5    :| repeat till end

Well the 9/4 parts gave me a bit of a headace, so I chose to put a 5/4 
measure there and keep the rest 4/4's. The accents in there come mostly 
at the 2nd half of each 1/4. (As one-AND-two-AND...)

What to play on Am - riff_1: Basically it's just A5/Am through, but I noticed
that it's easier to keep track of where you are, if you count the riffs 
especially, when you are singing. :)

  Am               riff_1           Am               riff_1

Hi. I found an A where there should be an E by the end... Also I reviewed the decending "themes" with the 9/4 counts... And update has been posted. (16-May-2013)
