Witchcraft - Wooden Cross I Cant Wake The Dead tab

Hello all ye faithful rock'n'rollers/stoners/doom heads and metal freaks.
Once again I've chosen to tab a tune from the Withcraft songbook!, the  wonderful band 
Sweden(ahh Sweden).
It's one of the heavier ones!. It's a good one for those whose about to rock, not too 
but still loads of fun and awesome sounding.
