SONG:  Little Dolls
ARTIST: Ozzy Osbourne
WRITTEN BY: Ozzy Osbourne, Randy Rhoads, Bob Daisley, and Lee Kerslake
TRANSCRIBED BY: The HitMan, Krist Smith

I use the idea of different guitars just to provide a way of telling
when to turn on and off the effects.

Guitar 1 - heavily distorted (perfectly, in fact)
Guitar 2 - clean tone
Guitar 3 - heavily distorted and possibly with a flanger or similar effect
Guitar 4 - clean tone with flanger or similar effect
*All guitars are tuned down 1/2 step (1=eb, 2=Bb, 3=Gb, 4=Db, 5=Ab, 6=Eb)


Basically, when you see "guitar 1", just hit the distortion.  It may seem
a lot for nothing, but I want to get as much as possible right.  Randy Rhoads

Riff Placement and Lyrics:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Intro (Riff A twice)

Verse 1 (Riff A four times)

Wrything and screaming, the pain just won't go
he'll show you no mercy.
Your image in his hands, it's useless to try
escaping his cusres.

Bridge 1 (Riff B once)

The pins and needles prick the skin of little dolls

(Riff A twice)

Verse 2 (Riff A four times)

Tortured and flaming, you'll give birth to hell
living a nightmare.
It's a pity, you'll pray for your death
but he's in no hurry.

Bridge 2 (Riff B once)

The pins and needles prick the skin of little dolls

Chorus (Riff C four times)

Nowhere to run - your fate is in his hands
Your time has come - you'll live to his command
I'm warning you - the worst is yet to come
The killer who remains a mystery

Verse 3 (Riff A four times)

I that believe in the stories of old
would never fight it.
Demons and curses that play on your soul
like something ignited.

Interlude (Riff D five times)

You never imagined such a thing would follow you 
(you never thought it was true)
And when it's your time I wonder how you'll do.
Your kind of trouble's running deeper than you see
You broke the rules, you've been a fool
The little dool is you, yeah.

Chorus (Riff C four times)

Nowhere to run - your fate is in his hands
Your time has come - you'll live to his command
I'm warning you - the worst is yet to come
The killer who remains a mystery

Solo

Bridge 3 (Riff E)

(Riff A twice)

(Repeat Verse 1 and the corus, but keep playing Riff C from the beginning of
the chorus until the end of the song)


   I know somebody's gotta know the REAL way to play this, so please notify
me if there are any mistakes.  I know the end of the solo is wrong and I
didn't really try to learn the outro.  Randy Rhoads was the greatest guitar
player of ALL TIME!!!  I also know most of Tribute (Ozzy's tribute to Randy)
and a few songs from Diary of a Madman and some Zakk Wylde songs from No
More Tears.  If there's a big demand, I'll post them.

My compliments and thanks to Roger Meech for tabbing Diary of a Madman for us.
