Acustic guitar (Capo at III)

(just the Chords ... lift some of your fingers now and then and do some
 finger-picking to get the right I.A. sound)

e-            D                        A
Sun streaking cold an old man wandring lonely,
a-              e-          D
taking time the only way he knows.
e-           D                         A
Legs hurting bad as he bends to pick a dog end .
   a-               e-                D
He goes down to the bog and warms his feet.

e-                D             A
Feeling alone the army's up the road,
a-             e-                D
salvation a la mode and a cup of tea.
e-          D                             A  
Aqualung my friend, don't you  start away uneasy.
    a-           e-            D 
You poor old sod see it's only me.


(faster and heavier)
e-                D                   e-
Do you still remember Decembers foggy freeze
			     D
when the ice that clings onto your beard
		   e-
was screaming agony?
		 D			        e-
And your ratling last breaths with deepseadiver sounds
	a-				  D
and the flowers bloom like madness in the spring. 


(G-pentatonic guitar solo)

... reapeat something of the beginning


(... please e-mail corrections)





 Ok, well the beginning riff and rythm of Aqalung is fairly easy to
figure out, and the acoustic part in the middle isn't really hard
either, but the solo is a bit difficult, I got the first few bars down
to what I think is right, but I'm going to post all of what I know,
and since just about every guitarist in the world knows this song, I
would appreciate it if you would post your versions of parts to the
song if they are different than the ones here, especially the solo.
So, this isn't really a request for the song I just want to know how
other people play it.

Opening riff:
   "Sitting on the park bench..."
e:-
B:-
G:-
D:-
A:--5--------3--4~--3--------
E:-----3--6------------------

Verse rythm section: (play 3 string power chords)

"Eyeing little girls with bad intent..."
Db Db Db Eb Eb Eb F F F Eb F Eb F Gb Db

"Hey, Aqalung"
Eb Eb Eb Db Gb Gb E B D

I'm pretty sure everyone can do without tab here

Acoustic Part (Slow):

"Sun streaking cold, an old man..."
Gm Gm   F F F F  C C   Cm Cm   Gm Gm   F F F F

Here occasionally hammer the 2nd and 3rd frets on the G string 
while playing the F chords.

Acoustic Part (Faster):

"I still remember..."
Gm     F F F    F    Gm Gm Gm  

"Taking time the only time he knows..."
Gm Gm  F F F F   Cm Cm Gm Gm  F F F F

And here is 1st part of the solo:

e:-------------------------------------------------------
B:-------------------------------------------------------
G:------10/12--14~----109-------------------------------
D:--10----------------------10------------------3-5--5/7-
A:------------------------------123--3----3h5-----------
E:-------------------------------------------------------

e:------------------------
B:------------------------
