Some explanations: 1.For the intro and RIFF 7 you must fret the low E string on the 1st fret, prebend a whole step and then release (that's what the R means). 2.Blank columns (as in Riff 1) do not count in timing. They are used only to distinguish the tab numbers. 3.p=p ull-off h=hammer on Song flow and lyrics: [Intro] X3 [Riff 1] X2 w/Riff 2 Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind? Can he walk at all? Or if he moves will he fall? [Riff 1] w/Riff 2 Is he 'live or dead? Has he thoughts within his head? We'll just pass him there. Why should we even care? [Riff 3] [Riff 1] X2 w/Riff 2 He was turned to steel in a great magnetic field Where he traveled time for the future of mankind w/Riff 4 Nobody wants him. He just stares at the world [Riff 5] w/Riff 4 Planning his vengeance that he will soon unfold [Riff 5] [Riff 1] X2 w/Riff 2 Now the time is here for Iron Man to spread fear Vengeance from the grave kills all the people he once saved w/Riff 4 Nobody wants him. They just turn their heads [Riff 5] w/Riff 4 Nobody hepls him. Now he has his revenge [Riff 5] {Double Time} [Riff 6] X2 [Solo 1] [Riff 6] X2 {Half Time} [Riff 5] X2 [Riff 1] X2 w/Riff 2 Heavy bolts of lead, fills his victims full of dread Running as fast as they can, Iron Man lives again [Riff 3] {Double Time . Bass enters} [Riff 7] X2 [Riff 8A] X2 [Solo 2] [Riff 8A] X3 [Riff 8B] Date: Thu, 6 Jun 1996 22:00:20 -0500 (CDT) From: Wim van Drongelen Black Sabbath "Ironman Solo #1" of CD Paranoid tabbed by Casper van Drongelen (Wimvan@itis.com) E-Mail me if you have any questions or comments
