The Soft Parade

	  		The Soft Parade by The Doors guitar tab 
Title: the soft parade INTRO

Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E) 
 
READ THIS BEFORE LOOKING AT THE TAB 
This isn't much at all, 
and it isn't tabbed out in accordance with the rythym of the 
song; but iam yet to find a tab for this song anywhere on the internet 
Also it is very IMPORTANT THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A BLENDING 
OF THE INTROS FROM BOTH THE LIVE VERSION (KEYBOARD INTRO) AND THE RECORDED 
VERSION (GUITAR INTRO). I've pasted this with the best chord interpretation 
that i've found on the internet. There are many different melodies going on 
in the intro that i havent't tabbed out, but this should make some of those 
parts easy to figure out. I haven't even tabbed out any other parts yet. But 
have fun playing what I believe to be the best DOORS song ever.

(spoken) 
 
"When I was back there in seminary school, 
there was a person who put forth the proposition 
that you can petition the Lord with prayer... 
petition the Lord with prayer... 
petition the Lord with prayer... 
petition the Lord with prayer. 
You cannot petition the Lord with prayer!"

Can you give me sanctuary?

I must find a place to hide, a place for me to         hide. 
 
Can you find me soft asylum?

I can't make it anymore;  the man is at     the    door.

Successfull hills are here to stay.

Everything must be this way.

welcome to the soft parade.

listen to the engines hum.

with lions in the night. 
 
 
E 
Out of sight!  The lights are getting brighter. 
The radio is moaning, 
callin' to the dogs there are still a few animals left out in the yard, 
but it's not getting harder to describe sailors to the underfed. 
Tropic corridor, tropic treasure. 
What got us this far, to this mild equador? 
We need someone or something new, 
something' else to get us through. 
But its getting harder, callin' on the dogs. 
Shoot at a few animals left out in the yard but its gettin' much harder. 
You'd better come along.  Just you and I. 
Better bring your gun. 
You'd better bring your gun. 
 
(spoken) 
 
When all else fails, we can whip the horses' eyes 
and make them sleep and cry. 
 
2nd voice over last part 
 
Callin' on the dogs, callin' on the dogs, callin' on the dogs. 
You gotta meet me at the crossroads. 
Gotta meet me at the edge of town, 
outskirts of the city. 
We were so alone. 
Better bring your gun. 
 
3rd voice over last part 
 
Too late, baby!  Too late. 
Tropic corridor, tropic treasure. 
Tropic corridor, tropic treasure.
