The King Will Come Tab

   
The King Will Come: Wishbone Ash

the timing for the chords (especially the intro) is hard but if you listen to the record
you can work it out. If you would like a chord sheet then get in touch. This is Live in 
Concert Disc 2 version so it differs from the Argus version. If you do capo on fret 1 then 
you can play it (and do all the lead parts one fret higher) or you could tune the guitar up one!! 
This is my first tab and I couldn't find any tabs for this song so i decided I would do my own!!!! 
Any comments welcomed!!!!

INTRO and MAIN RIFF

Dm               G
In the fire, the king will come.
Dm             C         G
Thunder rolls, piper and drum.
Dm         G
Evil sons, overrun,
Dm                 C        G
Count their sins - judgment comes. 

MAIN RIFF

The checkerboard of nights and days -
Man will die, man be saved.
The sky will fall, the earth will pray,
When judgment comes to claim its day.

RIFF 2

F            Em
See the word of the prophet
C                 Am        G
On a stone in his hand.
F          Em
Poison pen revelation,
C                     Am
Or just a sign in the sand?

RIFF 3

SOLO (which can be done around the pentatonic scale of Em/Gmajor with a Wah-Wah pedal)

Haven't quite worked this bit out, it's a little bit tricky, i just play riff 1 twice 
and then go to the verse....

RIFF 1 
              
In the fire, the king will come.
Thunder rolls, piper and drum.
Evil sons, overrun,
Count their sins - judgment comes.

RIFF 2

See the word of the prophet
On a stone in his hand.
Poison pen revelation,
Or just a sign in the sand?

RIFF 1 then end on:
