[* = Strum, listen to the song]

Intro Rhythm 1 (keyboard arr. for guitar):

The dancer slows her frantic pace

In pain and desperation,

Her aching limbs and downcast face

Aglow with perspiration

Stiff as wire, her lungs on fire,

With just the briefest pause

The flooding through her memory,

B                              C#/Db
The echoes of old applause.

She limps across the floor

F#/Gb                  D#/Eb
And closes her bedroom door...

    D#/Ebm              D#/Ebm            F#/Gb     B
                                           *         *
(This pattern follows through out the verse)

The writer stares with glassy eyes

Defies the empty page

His beard is white, his face is lined

And streaked with tears of rage.

Thirty years ago, how the words would flow

With passion and precision,

But now his mind is dark and dulled

B                                  C#/Db
By sickness and indecision

And he stares out the kitchen door

          F#/Gb                      D#/Eb
Where the sun will rise no more...

             D#/Eb  C#/Db  G#/Ab

D#/Eb            C#/Db
Some are born to move the world

To live their fantasies

D#/Eb               C#/Db
But most of us just dream about

The things we'd like to be

Em              D
Sadder still to watch it die

     C             G
Than never to have known it

B                      C#/Db
For you, the blind who once could see

B        C#/Db     B       C#/Db
The bell tolls for thee...

B        C#/Db        D#/Eb
The bell tolls for..

B        C#/Db     B        C#/Db

This is one of my favourite all time Rush song. Since I didn't find a full tab or chord 
for this song I thought it was time for someone to do it.
It was a pleasure figuring out the tab and chords for this incredible song and I'll hope 
enjoy it as much as I do!

Thanks a lot... there's actually another tab, and it's also very well made, but your approximation is easier to play and adapt to regular meters if necessary. The tab I'm telling you about can be found at http://www.cygnusproductions.com/rtp/guitar/guitar.asp along with many other Rush tabs... If you want to correct yours, I'd recommend starting by looking at that one. Thanks for tabbing man!

Good tab, but C#/Db is just C#. Why you would notate it as C#/Db I do not know.
