Notes :

This is one of the best songs ever written, IMHO. Altough the guitar is
quite easy, it's also a joy to play. This version ( the only live version
of this song that I've heard) is better than the one included in 
"B-sides themselves", mainly because of the extended solo at the end.    

Some of the bars are longer than others; this is because I wanted to 
put the lyrics over the music as accurate as I could, and because singers 
don't follow the bars of music, this was kind of hard to do.

Guitar4 is only used in the " But the Samaritan.." part, so if you don't have
a delay unit, don't worry : just listen to the song, and try to play the
resulting notes without delay.

Solo1 and Solo2 are only "interpretations", that is, some of the notes were
difficult to hear because of the prasing Steve uses and because I ain't very
good at hearing solos; but the phrases ( specially in Solo1 ) are close to
being note-for-note.

Also, don't expect to play this song without hearing the recording first.
And sorry for the lyrics, but, as you may have noticed, English isn't my
natural languaje, so I'm prone to make grammatical mistakes ( hmm.... )

This is my first tab, so, if you find any mistake, please, e-mail me or send
the correction to the tab archives.

Without any further wate of time, here it is!!

C (5th fret, 3rd string), bending it to D (2 steps), taping at the 10th fret,
releasing the tap, and then releasing the bend.

 From 3:11 to 4:02, RhyFig1 is repeated 7 times; at the end of the 2nd and 
 4th time, the keyboard plays Fill2. With that out of the way, I'm gonna 
 tab all the volume swells that Steve plays in each of the 7 times.

Lyrics (w/RhyFig1 7 times) :
" Exposing bedside manners on a work extension;
  awaiting development of paranoid, polaroid eyes, polaroid eyes.
  The footman memorized(?) the number 
  but the prince still holds both the slippers.
  And would you leave a palace thru bedsits in Canterboury Tales "
