Sole Survivor Tab

   
Blue Öyster Cult
"Sole Survivor"
FIRE OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN
Tabbed by Dave N.


Intro:                (x4 On the 4th time,
                       stop on the open 6th string and let it ring)
E---------------------|
B---------------------|
G---------------------|
D--------2-0----------|
A--0-2-3---------3-2--|
E------------3-0------|

Verse:
(fingerpick these chords in different ways to get it to sound right,
 because I can't find a particular pattern)

F
There walked a lonely man
Em
Silent mute the only man
    F
Not knowing how, not knowing why
    Em
Was he the sole survivor
F
Why should he be alive
Em
Breathing still while others died
F
And the only question
        Em
Why was he the sole survivor? [lead riff 1]
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/blue_oyster_cult/sole_survivor_tab.html ]
Lead riff 1:
E------------------|
B------------------|
G------------------|
D------------------|
A------------------|
E--8-7-5-5---------|

Chorus:  \ = slide down the neck towards the nut
  A        F        G
E--------------------------------------| (x4)
B--------------------------------------|
G--------------------------------------|
D-----7\-------3\-------5\-------------|
A-----7\-------3\-------5\-------------|
E-5-5-5\---1-1-1\---3-3-3\--0-3--------|
(So basically just hit the bass note twice then strum the
full chord and slide it downwards toward the nut.)

Chorus lyrics:
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night
Sole survivor
Cursed with second sight
Haunted savior
Cried into the night

That's all I have for now, but thats the majority of the song.
And of course the tab will make more sense if you listen to the song.
Feel free to add comments. Remember, this was all by ear but to me
it sounds really good ( that might just be my ego talking =P )
