 I hope you'll understand my writings because I didn't want to write
 everything in tab. Those chord parts and some simple riffs are marked
 with '/'. They take much less space now but I hope it doesn't become
 unreadable. Tempo is about 172... but it's not exact. Tune guitars
 1 halfsteps down. I also used the 'fake' chord names, so you'll have 
 to bring them down one halfstep with normally tuned guitar.
 
 All comments are welcome!

 H = Hammer on, P = Pull off, Ah = Artificial harmonic, -3- = triol

(Verse riff twice)
Hard pounding wheels, mud's flying high
Deep panting, throats running dry
The shap biting chill id freezing their breaths
But the tottering coach is beating its path

(Verse riff twice)
A dark and caped silhouette's in the haze
A covered phenomenon with a mask on his face
Pistol and sword, the coach has to stop
The marquis knows well he'll lose what he's got
