Never Let Go - from Camel's first album

Here comes a Camel favourit. It seems like I'm into transcribing chords
from the first Camel album (could it be that it's the only album which
can still be tabbed by an amature 'tabber' like me?). Coming next time:
"Slow Yourself Down", Congas not included.

The transcription is based on both original version and the 'Never Let Go'
live version. I suppose the C chord on the chorus is really another Am7,
but it's hard for me to decide. Anyway - it's a great song and it even
sounds great with one guitar.

Bass line is not included this time. Better figure it out yourself 'cos
it is as simple as only Doug Ferguson can get. Viva Ferguson! Why did he
ever leave the band?  :-<

Oh! Almost forgot! The tab was created using my new and incomplete TAB MASTER
program for tabbing guitar. When it's finished - you may all have it,
available for free on the net.

Blah blah blah. Enough of that! Enjoy! Comments etc are, as always, welcome.

repeat one more times before singing starts. Play this guitar 'line' through
the same chords on the song.

Am7             Bm7
Crazy creatures of our doom
Am7              Bm7
Telling us there is no room.
Am7            Bm7
Not enough for all mankind
Am7                  Bm7
And the seas of time are running dry.
C                      Bm
Don't they know it's a lie...


Em                   Am7
Man is born with the will to survive,
Bm7               C
He'll not take no for an answer.
Em              Am7
He will get by, somehow he'll try,
Bm7               C             Em
He won't take no, never let go, no...

repeat twice the Am7 - Bm7 section and then:

I hear them talk about Kingdom Come,
I hear them discuss Armageddon...
They say the hour is getting late,
But I can still hear someone say,
This is not the way...

Man is born with the will to survive,
He'll not take no for an answer.
He will get by, somehow he'll try,
He won't take no, never let go, no...

Organ solos (originally a melotron "flute" sound):

Repeat intro, then play chorus again, repeat chorus chords till fade, adding
guitar solo.
