English Sunset  The Moody Blues

Title: English Sunset
Album: Strange Times
*Standard Tuning*
Guitar Intro 1 - Repeat 4x
Bass in ( ) ? Comes in at the beginning of the third intro
[(A)] [(F)] [(G)]  

Verse 1:
[A]I wanna ride the range ac[F]ross those skies of black[G] [G]
[A]I wanna see for myself and [F]see me comin? back
G F G Intro 1 x2
And when I?ve gone the distance, I?ll be making tracks for an English Sunset.
Verse 2:
[A]We?re on a runaway train [F]rollin? down the track[G] [G]
[A]And where it?s takin? us to, [F]who knows where it?s at
G F G Intro x2*
But if we hold together, we can make it back for an English Sunset.
*At the end of the second verse, the second intro is played like this*

I feel the rhythm of the [D]earth in my soul tonight,[G]
G cont. F#m G A
May it never fade away.
And I?ve decided I can [D]live with humility, ([F]Ahhhhhhhhh [G]Ahhhhhhhh)
G cont. F G
And the sad decay (Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhhhh)
G cont. Intro 1 x2
?Cause that?s the English way.

Overall, this is a pretty easy song. The hardest part is probably getting
the timing down. Just listen to the track once or twice to get it right.
