Iron Maiden - Rime of the Ancient Mariner - transcribed by Gary Chapman
=========================================

tablature Copyright (c)1994 Gary Chapman

In my usual fashion, I got inspired by someone`s posting (in this case,
Andrew Kenter`s), belted out half of the song in one go, and then lost
interest. If I have the time and energy I`ll finish the song in the
not-too-distant future.

Here`s everything up to and including the slow section with the poem.
Taken from Live After Death.

C5
And the music plays on as the bride passes by.

D5 Riff B D5 E5
Caught by his spell and the mariner tells his tale.

Riff B
Driven south the the land of the snow and ice to a place where nobody`s been.

E5 C5
Through the snow fog flies on the albatross hailed in God`s name,

Riff B E5

C5
And the ship sails on, back to the north.

Through the fog and ice and the albatross follows on.

E5 Riff B
The mariner kills the bird of good omen.
His shipmates cry against what he`s done.
But when the fog clears they justify him.

E5
And makes themselves a part of the crime.

E5 Riff B
The albatross begins with his vengeance.
A terrible curse, a thirst has begun.
His shipmates blame bad luck on the mariner.
Around his neck the dead bird is hung.

C5 D5 Shanty B
And the curse goes on and on and on at sea.
And the curse goes on and on for them and me.

E5 Riff B
Day after day, day after day we struck nor breath nor motion.
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.

Water water everywhere, and all the boards did shrink

Water water everywhere, nor any drop to drink.

One after one by the star-dogged moon, too quick for a groan or sigh.
Each turned his face with a ghastly pang and cursed me with his eye.
Four times fifty living men, and I heard nor sigh nor groan.
With heavy thump, a lifeless lump, they dropped down one by one.
