Don't Fear The Reaper
Blue Oyster Cult

** I have added the solos to this song.  They should be quite
** accurate to what is on the record.  I need someone to add
** this to the archive.  Scott Walden

(Someone suggested playing the A open in the 3rd riff which is OK but
I checked the actual sheet music and the C 3rd fret is written
in the sheet music as the guitar and bass parts)

Let the open 'G' ring out each time


1st verse :

Am  G      F     G    Am    G     F   G
All    our times have come. ( music )

Am  G      F     G        Am    G     F   G
Here   but now   they're  gone. ( music )


F             G            Am
Seasons don't fear the reaper   nor


       F          E               Am  
do the wind,  the sun or the rain.     We


    G           F       G         Am
can be like they are.   Come on baby.  Don't

Fear the Reaper...
