Verse 
-Part 1 (w/ light distortion):
     E                    B                      E
 1)It's a long way to the promised land so you'd better well know your   
   B              E                        B                E
   way. There's a ship on the ocean and an albatross who is trying to   
            B     
   lead you astray

 Following the same pattern:
  (* : Guitar 2(w/ heavy distortion) strikes E5 ad lib)
                                               
 2)It's a long way to the promised land, if we work we might find it 
                    *                                       *
   here. There's no substitute for enlightenment, there's no reason for 
      
   bridled fear

choice and you bet your ass, you if give it to them, they will gladly 
E5        B5
