----------------------------------------------------------------

                   album. Released in the UK 1st December 1967.

----------------------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva



I had chosen some time ago not to tab this song because of its 
backwards tape guitar solo, but a recent request made me change
my mind and decided I'd do what I could simply to please that 
request and because I've always thought that Jimy was an awful 
player and so many of us owe him so much. His guitar all along 
the track is simply great. But I coudn't just forget about the 
solo, so I tabbed it as can be heard on the record. So there it 
is finally in case you want to give it a look. I just thought 
that the tab should rather have it than not. 


  

Down the street you can hear her scream you're a disgrace
As she slams the door in his drunken face
And now he stands outside
And all the neighbours start to gossip and drool
He cries oh, girl you must be mad
What happened to the sweet love you and me had? 
Against the door he leans and starts a scene,
And his tears fall and burn the garden green

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually

A little indian brave who before he was ten
Played wargames in the woods with his indian friends
And he built up a dream that when he grew up
He would be a fearless warrior indian chief
Many moons passed and more the dream grew stronger till
Tomorrow he would sing his first warsong and fight his first battle
But something went wrong, 
surprise attack killed him in his sleep that night

And so castles made of sand melts into the sea, eventually

There was a young girl, whose heart was a frown
'cause she was crippled for life
And she couldn't speak a sound
And she wished and prayed she could stop living,
So she decided to die
She drew her wheelchair to the edge of the shore
And to her legs she smiled you wont hurt me no more
But then a sight she'd never seen made her jump and say
Look a golden winged ship is passing my way

And it really didn't have to stop, it just kept on going ...

And so castles made of sand slips into the sea, eventually
