(Main Riff)
Warm and sweet, singing from a window's ledge
Tight and deep, one last sin before I'm dead
A sucking, holy wind takes me from this bed tonight
And bloody wits, another hits me and I have to say good-bye

(Straight to Chorus Riff)
Sleep tight for me, sleep tight for me
I'm gone

  "And I hope it's a sweet...     ride...

Power Chords:

C5            G5
Feel I'm go-ing

D5        G    F#  E5   
Feel I'm slo-wing
(End Riff)

During Solo:

D----------------------------------|---------|
A----3-3-3-3-3-5-------------------|-1--2--3-|
E-0---------------0-3-3-3-3-3-5--0-|---------|


(Play "Hope it's a sweet ride" riff)
(Play Intro again)

Then:
 "Sleep tight for me, I'm gone"
e--------------|-----------|
B--------------|-1--1--0---|
G--------------|-0--0----0-|
D---------5~~~-|-2--2------|
A--------------|-3--3------|
E--0--5/7------|-----------|
     repeat 2x     repeat entire riff

Ending is much like the solo, with improvizations all over the place. 
Finish on Em chord. That's it. Correct me if I'm wrong.


I'm looking for TABS for Frank Zappa, Nuno, Vernon Reid, and especially 
(Z). Send them in!
