Our Father - (Extreme III)
--------------------------



    

Solo not included.

The opening section is played with clean guitar and delay set at around
340 milliseconds.  (half of what you hear on the record is just slapback
echoes).

There's a lot of slide guitar during the chorus which I've haven't bothered
with.  



    

I've tried to keep the lyrics in time with the music.  To keep from wasting
space where there's a lot of words but not much music happening, I put
the words in brackets.  When the brackets end, the next word is in time
with the tablature above it.

As usual, the layout of this is a mess.  I understand it but no-one
else probably will.  Tough :-)


Key:
---

M above note = palm-mute 
a.h  = artificial harmonic
^ = hammer/pull
3(b)5 = bend 3rd fret to 5th

           (this part is more complicated when then singing starts.  It sounds

  That's it.  There's a fair bit more, but I haven't gotten around to it,

Oh daddy, please
Take me with you where you goin'?
Oh daddy, please
Come find the time, come watch us growin'
Oh daddy, please
Don't leave there's so much that we want to know before you go

Well I'm in need of someone to tie my shoes
Or take hold of my hand when I become afraid
And whose footsteps will I follow into
Daddy please
Don't run away

Our father
Far father
Our father
Far farther away

Oh daddy, please
I pray every night the doors will open
Oh daddy, please
This house is just a broken home
Left all alone

Well I'm in need of someone to tie my shoes
Or take hold of my hand when I become afraid
And whose footsteps will I follow into
Daddy please
Don't run away

Our father
Far father
Let me tell you 'bout
Our father
Far farther away

Oh daddy, no
Oh daddy, no
Don't run away, yea

And whose footsteps will I follow into
Daddy please
Don't you hear me
Don't run away

Our father
Far father
Lets talk 'bout
Our father
Yea, yea
Far father
Yea, I know what I'm talkin' 'bout
Our father
Far farther away
Far father
