Deep Purple - Sail Away tab

Hello everyone. This is my first contribution to the community, so...be gentle, please.

It's tabbed in standard tuning (or, at least, that's how I play it).\
Notation:

5h7  : hammer-on from the 5th fret to the 7th fret;
7p7  : pull-of from the 7th fret to the 5th fret;
7b9  : bend from the 7th fret to the 9th fret;
7b(9): bend and release from the 7th fret to the 9th fret;
5\7  : slide from the 5th fret to the 7th fret;
:2:  : a note that isn't in the song but I think it sounds good...
And when I say to play with a chord, I mean strumming the chord in rythm with the music, 
keeping it natural. Listen to the song and you will figure it out.

Intro:

e|------------------------------------------------------------|

D|----5-------------5-------------5-------------5--7h9p7\5----|
A|---7-7--7---5h7--7-7---5-------7-7--7---5h7--7-7---------5--|
E|--0----0-5h7----0---5h7-3-----0----0-5h7----0-----------7---|

This is where the drums come in. This part carries all troughout the song, during the 
and the main vocal parts. Just do it as many times as it seems necessary.

B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5-------------5-------------5-------------5-------------|

E|--0----0-5h7----0---5h7-3-----0----0-5h7----0---7-5-3-------|

This is the chorus:

    Time....will....show........When....I....don't....know....

                               play a little on this chord^
                           listen to the song to figure it out

    Sail...away...tomorrow...

G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----7------7------5-----------------------------------------|
A|---7------7------7-7----------------------------------------|
E|--5------5------0---5h7-5h7-0-------------------------------|

This last part carries trough the next 2 verses. Then comes this part:

    I'll be there someday...
e|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--5-------7---------9---------------------------------------|
E|--3-------5---------7---------------------------------------|
                      ^play with this chord

The solos (both the organ and the guitar one) are still under work...so...tough 
aren't here...sorry...

The end is also pretty straight forward... It's just the same figure as during the main 
only Blackmore adds a couple of extra things when the song starts to fade. Fiddle around 
them and see where they fit.

D|---5-5-----5-7b(9)p5--------7b(9)5--------------------------|
A|--7-7-7-7-7-7--------5---7-7-------5------------------------|
E|-0-----0-0----------7---0-0-------7-------------------------|

Play around with these figures and you'll be allright.

So...That's all folks!
