Rock Brigade  Def Leppard

Date: Wed, 23 Aug 1995 01:05:11 -0400 (EDT)
From: Gary and Teresa Vander Ploeg
Subject: TAB Rock Brigade, Def Leppard
Rock Brigade was Leppards first song to receive extensive radio play in
North America. I have always liked the opening riff. Actually I had
always played this in 'D' but just recently discovered that it should be
in 'E'. Live and learn... The second guitar part plays the power chords
as listed in the chord chart at the beginning. If there are no chords
writted above the tab, play a solo (I don't know it) or play the first
guitar part with both guitars.

(Riff 'A' 2 times)
(Riff 'A')
Well in the middle of the night
And the early morning light
You can hear them a million miles away
(Riff 'A')
They'll be banging on their drums
Banging on your door
Waving their flags telling you the score
(Riff 'B')
CHORUS: Watch out for the Rock Brigade
Oh no it's the Rock Brigade
Look out for the Rock Brigade
Leading you away, away
(Riff 'A')
So when they hit your town
You'd better get down I'm telling no lies to you mister
(Riff 'A')
'cause they live for rock 'n' roll
They'll try to steal your soul
Might even try to steal your sister
(Riff 'C')
(Riff 'D')
(Riff 'A')
So in the middle of the night
Or the early morning light
If you hear them coming your way
(Riff 'A')
Well you'd better watch you step
Don't step out of line
'cause here they come one more time
(Riff 'E')
