Rush: In the Valley
From the album Caress of Steel (Mercury Records)
Copyright 1975 Core Music Publishing
Music by Lee and Lifeson
Lyrics by Peart

Again, this Rush song is the culmination of many hours of work. It is
not 100% complete, but every effort has been made to include as much as
possible. Part V "Bacchus Plateau" does not have the complete solo. Part
VI "The Fountain" does not have the complete solo either. I was not able
to work them out in their entirety, but all my work is present. This work
is entirely original in that I did not take anything from any previously
existing parts which are available online in order to create the tab.
Speaking of which, 'No One At The Bridge' was previously tabbed by Paul
Bryant . 'Panacea' was previously tabbed by
Vidar Bergh . 'Didacts and Narpets' is care of
Branden Robinson .

I am born; I am me.
I am new; I am free.
Look at me; I am young.
Sight unseen; Life unsung.

[Riff 3] x2

[Riff 3] x2 w/ lyrics:

My eyes have just been opened and they're opened very wide.
Images around me don't identify inside.

Just one blur I recognize, the one that soothes and feeds.
My way of life is easy, and as simple are my needs. [strike A5]

[Riff 4] x2

[Riff 4] x2 w/ lyrics:

Yet my eyes are drawn towards the mountain in the east.
Fascinates and capitaves; gives my heart no peace.

      D                                C
The mountain holds the sunrise in the prison of the night,

      D                                     C         Fmaj7
till bursting forth from rocky chains, the valley... floods...

       G6
with light.

[Riff 3] x2

[Riff 3] x2 w/ lyrics:

Living one long sunrise, for to me all things are new.
I've never watched the sky grow pale, or strolled through fields of dew.

I do not know of dust to dust, I live from breath to breath.
I live to climb that mountain to the Fountain of Lamneth. [strike A5]

[Riff 4] x2 w/ lyrics:

Yet my eyes are drawn towards the mountain in the east.
Fascinates and capitaves; gives my heart no peace.

      D                                C
The mountain holds the sunrise in the prison of the night,

      D                                     C         Fmaj7
till bursting forth from rocky chains, the valley... floods...
