Powerslave by Iron Maiden
tabbed by selkayann

Am              C      Am            Am/Bb  Am     C     Am 
Into the Abyss I'll fall - the eye of Horus
Am              C      Am             Am/Bb  Am   C  Am 
Into the eyes of the night - watching me go
Am                      C      Am        
Green is the cat's eye that glows -
     Am/Bb  Am     C  Am  
In this Temple
Am           C       Am          Am/Bb  Am    C  Am    
Enter the risen Osiris - risen again.

[Chorus] 

Em             C      D    Em         A  
Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
Em                          C 
I don't wanna die, I'm a God,
          D    Em         A 
Why can't I live on?
Em           
When the Life Giver dies,
C       D    Em            A  
All around is laid waste,
Em 
And in my last hour,
         C          D        Em        A  
I'm a Slave to the Power of Death.

[Bridge]
Am         C         Am         Am/Bb

[Verse]

Am               C       Am          Am/Bb  Am  C Am 
When I was living this lie - Fear was my Game
Am                    C      Am  
People would worship and fall -
Am          Am/Bb   Am    C  Am 
Drop to their knees.
Am               
So bring me the blood and
C       Am              Am/Bb  Am  C Am
Red wine for the one to succeed me,
Am                 C      Am 
For he is a man and a God -
Am          Am/Bb   Am         C   Am 
And He will die too.

[Chorus] 

Em             C      D    Em         A  
Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
Em                          C 
I don't wanna die, I'm a God,
          D    Em         A 
Why can't I live on?
Em           
When the Life Giver dies,
C       D    Em            A  
All around is laid waste,
Em 
And in my last hour,
         C          D        Em 
I'm a Slave to the Power of Death.

[Verse]

Am            C     Am          Am/Bb Am       C Am
Now I am cold but a ghost lives in    my veins,
Am                C    Am    
Silent the terror that reigned -
        Am/Bb Am
Marbled in    stone
  Am             C   Am
A Shell of a man God preserved -
        Am/Bb Am   C Am
For thousand  ages,
    Am                C  Am
But open the gates of my hell -
            Am/Bb    Am   C Am
I'll strike from the grave
