    B+       A         G     F
The earth it moves too slow
        Am       G      F
But the earth is all we know
          Am       G     F
We pay to play the human way

   The beginning was the end (of everything now)
C      B     A         G
   The ape regards his tail (he's stuck on it)
F    Am      G      F
   Repeats until he fails
          Am       G          F
   Half a goon and half a god
     Am        G       F x 4 bars
   A man's not made of steel

       C       B+    A   G     C
Twist away now twist and shout
    B+       A         G     F
The earth it moves too slow
        Am       G      F
But the earth is all we know
          Am       G     F
We pay to play the human way
      Am       G        F x 4 bars
Twist away the gates of steel (a man is real that's how he feels)

outro
C         B+  A     G
/ / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / /  x 2
F         Am  G
/ / / / | / / / /  x 3
F         Am  G     F                                      C
/ / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / / | / / / /| /

Performance notes:
- most of the guitar is just strummed once and held for the two beats,
  four beats or even two bars!!
- major 'chunky' (as opposed to 'smooth' like the peanut butter)
  distortion with little treble on the guitar

Have fun with it and enjoy!

Bruce

What does B+ mean?

It means "B with a little something extra". Look at the chord shape for a B9. If you can work that in, great. If not, use the regular B chord you know and love.
