Burn
Deep purple
Intro: Gm

Gm
The sky is red, I don't understand;
F/G
past midnight I still see the land.
Gm
People are sayin' the woman is damned,
C Gm
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.___
The city's ablaze, the town's on fire;
F/G
the woman's flames are reachin' higher.
Gm
We were fools, we called her "liar";
Bb F C Gm Eb C Gm
All I hear is "Burn!"_____________

I didn't believe she was devil's sperm;
she said, "Curse you all, you'll never learn!
When I leave there's no return!"
The people laughed till she said, "Burn!"___
Warning came, no one cared;
earth was shakin', we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared;
Still I hear "Burn!"______________

Dm Bb
You know we had no time,
Am Bb
we could not even try,______
Dm Bb/D C/D Gm
You know we had no time.

The sky is red, I don't understand;
past midnight, I still see the land.
People are sayin' the woman is damned;
she makes you burn with a wave of her hand.
Warning came, no one cared;
earth was shakin, we stood and stared.
When it came no one was spared.
Still I hear "Burn!"

g------5-3-0-5------3-3--0-5--0-3-------5-3-0-5----5-3-0----
d------5-3-0-5------3-3--0-5--0-3-------5-3-0-5----5-3-0-3--

"Use pull-offs and hammer-ons....this is basically a two finger riff."


RIFF SUGGESTION 2: (from Tomas (etxtlm@sta.ericsson.se))

accurate:

"...but I know I play a whole load of Purple riffs differently to the way the
b'stard in black does (I know he plays Space Truckin' differently to me)"
