tablature Copyright (c)1994 Gary Chapman

In my usual fashion, I got inspired by someone's posting (in this case,
Andrew Kenter's), belted out half of the song in one go, and then lost 
interest.  If I have the time and energy I'll finish the song in the
not-too-distant future.

Here's everything up to and including the slow section with the poem.
Taken from Live After Death.

        C5                         
And the music plays on as the bride passes by.
 
D5                                  Riff B             D5  E5
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale.
 
                                                                    Riff B
Driven south the the land of the snow and ice to a place where nobody's been.
 
E5                                          C5
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross hailed in God's name, 
 
            Riff B           E5
hoping good luck it brings.
 
        C5
And the ship sails on, back to the north.
 
D5                                        Riff B
Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on.

E5                                         Riff B
The mariner kills the bird of good omen. 
His shipmates cry against what he's done.
But when the fog clears they justify him.
 
E5
And makes themselves a part of the crime.
 
        C5            D5

'till all is calm.
 
E5                                          Riff B
The albatross begins with his vengeance.
A terrible curse, a thirst has begun.
His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner.
Around his neck the dead bird is hung.
 
        C5                D5                  Shanty B
And the curse goes on and on and on at sea.
And the curse goes on and on for them and me. 
 
E5                                                             Riff B
Day after day, day after day we struck nor breath nor motion.
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.
 
C5                                                     Riff B
Water water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink
 
E5                                                Riff A

(alternate between the two combinations above)
 
One after one by the star-dogged moon, too quick for a groan or sigh.
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang and cursed me with his eye.
Four times fifty living men, and I heard nor sigh nor groan.
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump, they dropped down one by one.
