                 ******************************************************************
 Cortez the Killer - Neil Young and Crazy Horse
 Album - ZUMA      (banned in Spain at one time, go figur')

 The chord voicing is generally: Em7, D and Am7. On Zuma and live,
 variations off the root come in, a la Em, Dsus2, Dsus4, Am7, Am
 Am7sus4, Asus2, etc... So PLEASE play around with it for the rythym
 sections, AND whilst improvising when soloing.
 This was tabbed out using a gut strung beater during my move to a
 new home, so perhaps the positions might not be as suitable as
 they would via an electric, as well as the standard tuning.
 ******************************************************************
                 ...next up, Emperor of Wyoming -or- I Am A Child

 Standard tuning adaptation
 RYTHYM:
 |/Em7   /D      /Am7    /       :|| - repeat until you die.

 3:21Em7                            D
 He came dancing across the water w/ his galleons and guns
     Am7                            /
    looking for the new world, and the palace in the sun...
     Em7                            D            3:45
 On the shore lay Montezuma with his   cocoa leaves and pearls
     Am7                            /
 in his halls he often wandered with the secrets of the world.
    Em7                             D       4:00
 And his subjects gathered`round him like the leaves around the tree
    Am7                             /
 in their clothes of many colors for the angry gods to see...
    Em7                             D
 And the women all were beautiful & the men stood straight and strong.
    Am7                             /
 they offered life in sacrafice so that others could go on...

 Hate was just a legend        and war was never known.
     Am7                            /
       people worked together and they lifted many stones...
     Em7                            D
 And they carried them to the flatlands, but they died along the way.
 5:45Am7                            /
 and they built up with their bare hands what we still can't do today.
     Em7                            D
 And I know she's living there, and she loves me to this day
     Am7                            /
 I still can't remember where, or how I lost my way.
