                        PLEIADES   BY   KING'S X

                        from Gretchen Goes To Nebraska
                  copyright 1989 Jetydosa Music

Transcribed by Brian King

Notes:  I have made this transcription for one guitar, although there are two
parts after the singing stops.  You can get by with one I have included, which
is sort of a combination of the two parts. Watch out for the Sign, and the Coda
markings.  The time signature for PLEIADES is 4/4, noted at the beginning of
each staff.  NOTE:  TUNE THE 6TH STRING DOWN TO D!  Have fun. My Internet
address is: gt6851a@prism.gatech.edu.  Call me if you need help.  Does anyone

Lyrics: Pleiades

When I look up at the stars at night
What could I find beyond the light?
A hundred million worlds that we ignore.

Who can restrain Pleiades,
Or know the laws of heavenlies?
How many times have we been wrong before?

Far off in the field I see a castle.
Today the people gather at the pole.
He tried to tell us all the world was spherical.
They burned his body, but not his soul.
