Verse 1:
A                        F                            G G
I wanna ride the range across those skies of black

We?re on a runaway train rollin? down the track

G                        F                          G       Intro x2*
But if we hold together, we can make it back for an English Sunset.

[ Tab from: ]


                         D                           G
I feel the rhythm of the earth in my soul tonight,
G cont.                     F#m                  G            A
May it never fade away.
                       D                                 F           G
And I?ve decided I can live with humility,              (Ahhhhhhhhh  Ahhhhhhhh)
G cont.                            F             G
And the sad decay                 (Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhh)
G cont.                   Intro 1 x2
?Cause that?s the English way.

Overall, this is a pretty easy song. The hardest part is probably getting
the timing down.  Just listen to the track once or twice to get it right.
