I saw the other versions on this site
and decided to make one of my own.

One more thing, the outro gets very low 
towards the end, so you will have to blast the 
speakers to hear the whole thing.

Hey Guys, I forgot to put up a chord chart

So here it is:

B5 - x 2 4 4 x x

F#5 - 2 4 4 x x x

D5 - x 5 7 7 x x

A5 - 5 7 7 x x x

E5 - 0 2 2 x x x

G5 - 3 5 5 x x x

That's it.
I hope that clears thing up.

matt j t - 2005-09-05

No problem!!

datalcott - 2005-10-13

This is a good start, but I've got a few comments for ya. The song's in Drop D tuning. There's no way he plays the D chord in the chorus up on the fifth and seventh frets. He's got it drop D'd and he's hammering on and off from the 0-0-0 and 2-2-2 D and E power chords (listen at the end of each line of the chorus).

On the chorus, you need to Hammer onto or slide up to the B5, G5, and E5 chords. Something like this: A5//B5 F#5//G5 D5//E5. Or, A5HammerB5, F#5HammerG5, D5HammerE5.

Also, you don't have the intro and verse riff. Here is it:


Good start, though, man. Keep on Rockin for the Cross!

datalcott - 2005-10-13

Sorry that Riff came out so funky. Try this one:


matt j t - 2005-10-14

Thanks for the correction. The reason why I didn't pick that up is probably because when I tabbed this song, I was in my "I hate tuning down" mode. So it probably never occured to me to drop the D, thanks alot.

And about the riff, Awesome job! I never even tried to tab it, Thanks!

matt j t - 2005-10-14

so If you want the chords in dropped D version...her they are:

B5 - x 2 4 4 x x

F#5 - 4 4 4 x x x

D5 - 0 0 0 x x x

A5 - 7 7 7 x x x

E5 - 2 2 2 x x x

G5 - 5 5 5 x x x
