      keep the  wall  against  my  back

[Pattern1]^?
         E
 and the night is black
   as  black as night


[pattern 1, at E/nut]
         E
I got a two       dollar       stare
       Midas in my touch and Deliliah in my hair


[pattern 1 at A (5th fret)]
      A
I got bad intentions on the soles of my shoes


[pattern1, at E(nut)]
          E
With this red hot fever and these chromium blues


[pattern2]
     C#m                              A
        and  I  will  feel  another  lover's wheel
        drive for miles and not look back
& the  love  is   real   as   the    day  is  long


[pattern1]
        E
and the night is black
    as black as night

  chrome plated heart. . .


[repeat last riff to fade]


* don't play the G string yet, but keep your hand in an Emajor shape
throughout the riff. Also its best to use your 2nd,3rd & 4th fingers for
the E, coz you'll need your index finger for a barre in a minute.

$- is pop/slap bass- pick this by hooking the string away from the
scratchplate with your thumb(nail).

h is a hammer on
p is a pull off
. is cut the note short
