Alternately, you can try: 
Intro and Main Riff (both guitars):  Lick  A/B  
e ------------              
B ------------              
G ------------              
D -4---2-4----              
A -4---2-4--2v              
E ------------    
 
 
These are the two important licks which are used repeatedly throughout the song. Play each  
note where I signify. 
 
 
 
 
The INTRO is just lick A played on its own twice. Then you are straight into the verse.  
Play lick  B  and Dno3rd a couple of times before the lyrics start. In the first half of the  
verses Lick  B  is played right the way through while the other guitar plays the other chord  
signified (Dno3rd). 
 
VERSE: 
 
Guitar Lick:  B  
Dno3rd 
Out of the winter came a war-horse of steel 
Dno3rd 
I've never killed a woman before but I know how it feels 
 
PART 2 (This is the second part of the verse. It is the same in every verse, so I am only  
tabbing it once.) 
 
 F1fr.              G3fr.                      Guitar lick:  B  
                                          Dno3rd 
I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw 
 F1fr.              G3fr.        A5fr.                     
Now I've got to look for   Sanctuary from the law 
 
Tabbed out: 
Riff 2          
         ...saw what I saw..        ..for....Sanctuary.. 
e ---------  -----------           ------------ 
B ---------  -----------           ------------ 
G ---------  -----------           ------------ 
D ---------  4--2--4----           ----------3- 
A -7--5----  4--2--4--2v (2x)      --7--5----1- 
E -5--9----  -----------           --5--9------ 
 
 
 
 
After this the song stops then starts again. You just play the INTRO bit again and play  
verse two, which is exactly the same as verse one, but with different lyrics for the first  
part (see lyrics at the end of the tab). 
 
After this it's the bridge. 
 
 
In the bridge when the lyrics stop the song has a very rhythmical guitar part before the solo.  
This is the bit in the tab which begins on the first "....tonight" and is made up firstly  
of barred E's & D's and then moves down through D's & C's to  Bm  and A. It's starting to  
sound complicated but trust me, it ain't that hard if you play along with the CD for the  
rhythm. 
 
 
BRIDGE: 
 
 A5fr.                   G3fr.  
So give me sanctuary from the law 
 A5fr.           D5fr.  
And I'll be alright 
 A5fr.                   G3fr.  
Just give me sanctuary from the law 
 A5fr.           D5fr.  
And love me tonight 
 E7fr.   D5fr.   E7fr.   D5fr.   E7fr.

 D5fr.   C3fr    D5fr.   C3fr.   D5fr.   Bm7fr.  A5fr.

The SOLO starts after this. It sounds a bit lame to tell you that it is an improvised solo,  
but it's true. It's typical Dave Murray as it is never played the same twice. Besides,  
I'm buggered if I can play or tab the solos on the CD but here at least are the background  
chords.  
 
While the Solo is played, the other guitar plays: 
 
Guitar lick  B  x8 
 F1fr.  
 G3fr.  
Guitar lick  B  
 F1fr.  
 G3fr.  
Guitar lick  B  x3 
Dno3rd 
 C(not  barre) 
Guitar lick  B  
 
After the solos, there is this four times: 
      Am(not  barre)                       D(not  barre) 
E|--------------------------|---------------------0-------------2----------------------------

G --------15---------------3-----     ----------------- 
D -------------------------------     ----------------- 
A -------------------------------     ----------------- 
E -------------------------------     ----------------- 
 
 
Then it's back to: 
 F1fr.              G3fr.                      Guitar lick:  B  
                                          Dno3rd 
I know you'd have gone insane if you saw what I saw 
 F1fr.              G3fr.        A5fr.                     
Now I've got to look for   Sanctuary from the law 
 
After that it's time for VERSE THREE, for which the same applies as for verses one and two. 
 
 
Then it's the start of the bridge again...unless, of course, it's the live version.  In 
which case you should play: 
 
(Live version with short breaks) 
 
(Adrian)  little bit muted

G-------------      G-------------

E-------------      E------------- 
 
 
 
 A5fr.                   G3fr.  
So give me sanctuary from the law 
 A5fr.           D5fr.  
And I'll be alright 
 A5fr.                   G3fr.  
Just give me sanctuary from the law 
 A5fr.           D5fr.  
And love me tonight 
 E7fr.   D5fr.   E7fr.   D5fr.   E7fr.
