  Verse 1 (with riffA 2x):
  On a magical misty morning, I was standing in the Autumn rain
  When suddenly the birds fell silent, would I ever hear them sing a-

  There's also some kind of harmony line going on during this part. 
  The following seems to work ok:
  I----------------------------------------------------------------I
  I----------------------------------------------------------------I
  I--------------------------/8--7--5--3--2h3--2h3p2(trill)--0-----I
  I--------------5-------------------------------------------------I
  I--5--7--8--7-----8--7--5----------------------------------------I
  I----------------------------------------------------------------I
  On the second time end this part with a D5 chord.
  Then the solo starts.  And too bad I don't have it, because it's a
  good one.  But here's the rhythm:
  I----------------------------------------------------------------I
  I----------------------------------------------------------------I
  I--10-10------------------10--10-10------------------10--10-10---I

  Then RiffC 2x.
  Verse 3
  Her eyes were hypnotizing, burning deep inside my brain
  The lady in black was here now, she was here to take me far away..
  Take me far away....
 
  The rest of the song is just the same riffs as above but in 
  different combinations, and as it's Saturday night and I want
  to go defile tombstones or whatever I'll leave it for you to
  figure out.  Bye.
