The last one had a few mistakes. This is tab is right. At least if it's
not exactly correct, it's close enough that no one will be able to tell
the difference. 

For this song, form the chords and then finger pick the strings.
The Chords are as follows:

C#m    A9   E   Esus  B4  B4(D#)
e|-0-----0----0----0----0-----0-----------------------------
B|-0-----0----0----0----0-----4-----------------------------
G|-6-----2----1----2----4-----4-----------------------------
D|-6-----2----2----2----4-----4-----------------------------
A|-4-----0----2----2----2-----2-----------------------------
E|-X-----X----0----0----X-----X-----------------------------


It would take forever to tab the whole song, but here are the major
riffs played. There are quite a few of them, but don't worry about that.
They are all very similar with just a few differences between each one.
It's not as hard as it looks. Especially if you have the c.d. and you have
had some experience with finger picking. 
Have fun with it.

The symbols are as follows:  h- Hammer on
p- Pull off

Here are the lyrics and where to play each riff:

Intro: Riff 1 (1x)  Riff 2 (1X)

Verse 1-
Riff 1 (3X)
Stay with me awhile.
Well it may seem foolish, but I'm scared
My beloveds yelling "Crucify!"
Riff 3 (1X)
Its as if no one ever cared.

Verse 2-
Riff 1 (3X)
Soldiers mock me with their songs.
They laugh because I'm naked and I'm weak
Well I don't know how much longer I can go on,
Riff 4 (1X)
When every breath I take is just to weep.

Chorus 1-
Riff 1 (1X)
And for a moment time stood still,
Riff 5 (1X)
To listen to the King of the hill.
Riff 1 (1X)
And all the angels just stood still.
Riff 6 (1X)
To listen to the King of the hill.

Verse 3-
Riff 1 (3X)
Well I could've had servants
And I could have ruled this world as their King.
And I could have had wealth beond measure.
Riff 7 (1X)
I could have had anything, but it wouldn't have meant anything

Verse 4-
Riff 1 (3X)
Not my will but Yours be done,
I had no agenda, only Your truth.
You were so proud to call me Son,
Riff 4 (1x)
Now Father, I commit my soul to You.

Chours 2-
Riff 1 (1X)
And for a moment time stood still,
Riff 5 (1X)
To listen to the King of the hill.
Riff 1 (1X)
And I can hear You whisper, still;
Riff 8 (1X)
Father, I'm the King of the hill,
Riff 6 (1X)
Father, I'm the King of the hill

I Hope this isn't too confusing. It's the only way I could think to tab
everything out. It will help if you have the c.d. and can listen to the
song while you are learning it. 
Enjoy!
