(from here you should be able to ad in your own notes to doyle's words)

  All I had..

  To show me the way..

  Was the sound of music..

  From the street every day..
                   
Chorus:
		    C#   B  B   A  
  Too many people..
		    C#   B  B   A  
  Not enough shelter..
		    C#   B  B   A  
  The poor getting weaker..
		    C#   B  B   A  
  The rich getting stronger..
		    C#   B  B   A  
  I've seen everything..
		    C#   B  B   A  
  I needed to see...
		    C#   B  B   A  
  I got my mind made up..
		    C#   B  B   A  
  To give it all away..


Verse:


  Workin' man..
  
  Way down south..

  Bet any moment back at the house..

  All that love..

  Couldn't hold back..

  Cause bells were ringing..

  The sky turned black..





Solo:
the prelude is a bunch of licks that are just varied versions
of the intro riff.

then play the hell out of these notes.
e---------   --------  --------  --------
B---------   --------  --------  --------
G-----9---   ---12---  ---16---  ---14---
D---------   --------  --------  --------
A---------   --------  --------  --------
E---------   --------  --------  --------

another snippet
e------------------------
B------------------------
G------12h14-------12h14-  (repeated fast)
D--14----------14--------
A------------------------
E------------------------




Lead in to big solo:
  
..Smokestack..               ..Smokestack..
e-------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------
G-----------------------12^----------- 
D-----------------12------------------
A-----------/14-----------------------
E-------------------------------------
(repeat 8 times, getting softer each time)

if anyone can figure out the rest of this, 
I'd be not only grateful, but amazed.
