There hasn't been a request for anything from the
Coverdale/Page album in quite a while, but I think
there are some really good songs on it.  So I guess
I'll start things off by posting what I know of
"Whisper a Prayer for the Dying."

If anyone knows anything of the other songs on the
album, please post them!  If not, I'll try to get
a few more of them tabbed later.

The entire song is pretty much structured around these four figures. I don't remember exactly how everything goes together, It seems to me that Fig. 1 is repeated about a million times at the beginning, followed by Fig. 2. My advice--listen to the song to find out where each of these fits in, because I don't remember. Questions, comments, additions, and corrections are always welcome.
