                This is not my handywork.
The person who did this tab was much better than me.
Anyhoo Enjoy


Standard Tuning

This is an under rated track off of the DoD album.
I have not tabbed the entire song, just the main parts
to get you going. All of you experts out there can figure
out the solo's. Another great track that has acoustic melody and
symphony feel to make Maiden better than ever before! It is a shame
that they are not playing this on their DoD 2003 World Tour!

INTRO: Acoustic/Clean..There are other ways to play this, but this
                       was the easiest for me!

INTRO :(Cont.)Next is the background orchestra sound with
guitars switching to distortion playing special effects
using natural harmonics.  Listen to the track for timing and
appropriate frets.

Now the music kicks in full gear and I have tabbed the
melody that coincides with the symphony sound. It repeats
throughout the song!

Pre-Chorus: Here is the pre-chorus line "I wait for the sign,
they tell the truth. This repeats through the song.
