this part is all harmonics, play it through distortion and it'll

sound great. just play it as if your hand wasn't strong enough to

press down on the frets just right, you'll get very good artificial

harmonics.

 

the intro part is throughout the speech ("vanity of vanities..."

verse pt 1 is played once or twice in the beginning of the verse,

verse pt 2 is played throughout most of the verse, with a B chord

sometimes substituted for the A chord (the A chord is marked with a *).

verse pt 3 is used at the end of the verse and during the solo, right

before the solo, it's doubled and harmonized a fourth up (same fret, next

higher string)

 

wailing guitar throughout the beginning:

there's more, but that's all i really feel like sitting down

and figuring out.

 

 

lyrics:

 

[now i would like, friends, this evening, we should stand there ]

[with all other of gods creatures on the curtstone. and watch this]

[march of time; let us take our stand with them. and as we ]

[stand there i hear one of them whispering "he is a hebrew slave,"]

[he said. "vanity of vanities, the whole thing is a vain charade; ]

[it has no meaning." ]

 

ooh the hand

of god

lays high

above me

oh he's so good

if you really

loved me

make me feel

your mighty crunch

as you run

me out

like a wall defiled scepter

[let it be known today that if you've got two hands you're supposed to pray]

oooh the hand

of god

is stacked

and callous

bruised

from stones

and sticks

the hand

of god

has got

a ring about the size of texas

maybe sleet

steadied stones

my fingers

never smelled.

[let it be turned to see if it fits ]

[--stolen--whoa, then, ]

[don't touch anything unholy with it!]

 

[let it be known today that if you've got two hands you're supposed to pray]
