                          "Requiem For The Masses"
                              (Terry Kirkman)

Jim Yester, in the liner notes to the Japanese _From The Original Master
Tapes_ CD (Warner/Pioneer WPCP-3536):

  Written during the peak of the Vietnam War, this flip side of "Never My
  Love" soon became an underground hit, and its stark dramatic tone and
  shockingly beautiful requiem mass parts [became] a favorite at live
  concerts.


Note: guitar is capoed at 4th fret; chords are notated in brackets

	Snare roll [2X]

	Requiem aeternam, requiem aete...rnam

Verse:

	F#            F#6

	     F#                    F#6
	     [D]                   [D6]
	And turn your eyes to the bloodshot sky
	      F#7            F#
	      [D7]          [D]
	Your flag is flying full

	   F#		(octaves in piano l.h; guitar enters gradually)
	   [D]
	At half-mast
	For the matadors
	Who turned their backs
	To please the crowd
	And all fell before the bull

Bridge 1:

	 B           Bbm Abm      F#
	[G]         [F#m][Em]     [D]

	        [G]          [F#m] [Em]    [D]
	Pallid white was the color of his lifeless skin
	 B           Bbm  Abm      F#
	[G]         [F#m] [Em]     [D]
	Blue was the color of the morning sky
	    A
	   [F]
	He saw looking up from the ground where he died
	                 Abm        F#

	F#m E  C#m B  F#
	Kyrie elei...son

	(flugelhorn and military drums)

[repeat verse]

Bridge 2:

	Black and white were the figures that recorded him
	Black and white was the newsprint he was mentioned in
	Black and white was the question that so bothered him
	He never asked, he was taught not to ask
	What was on his lips as they buried him

	(acapella w/military drums; chords implied:)

	F#
	Rex tremendae majestatis

Coda:

	(acapella w/military drums; chords implied:)

	Requiem aeternam, requiem aete...rnam

	(flugelhorn and military drums to fade)


-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
