From: "R. McPherson" 
Subject: TAB:  Skating Away (On The Thin Ice Of The New Day)by Jethro Tull


Thanks to help from storvik@ux4.cso.uiuc.edu we now have:

Title: Skating Away on the Thin Ice of the New Day
Artist: (Jethro Tull) Anderson/Barre?
Transcribed By: rjmcpher@uci.edu
Note: CAPO 3rd fret (written as though 3rd fret = open)

Add lots of rhythmic style to the chord playing
from sus2 to major to sus4 forms.

Chord forms named as if played without a capo:

verses: (note: D2-4 indicates D major to sus2 to sus4 etc..)

D5                           D
So as you push off from the shore
D2-4                          A2-4
won't you turn your head once more
                              D2-4
and make your peace with everyone

D5                        D
for those who choose to stay
D2-4                    A2-4
will live just one more day
                                D2-4
to do the things they should've done

G
and as you cross the wilderness
   A
suspended in your emptiness
             D2-4
you feel you have to pray

G
looking for a sign that
    F2
the universal mind as
D2-4                            A2-4
written you into their passion play

[chorus]

and as you cross the circle line
while the iceworld sheets behind  (lyrics fuzzy here?)
you're a rabbit on the run

and the silver splinters fly
in the corner of your eye
shining in the setting sun

well do you ever get the feeling
that the stories do their reeling
in the present tense

or that everybody's on the stage
and it seems like you're the only
person sitting in the audience

[chorus]

skating away
skating away
skating away

-end
