Ok, dont laugh, so maybe it's a pretty simple song, but its got a cool little
solo.  Anyway here it is in its glorious entirety, love to see some other
Blackmore stuff up here (hint, hint).

P.S. Never, ever play this in a guitar store!
P.P.S.  Remember to finger pick the riff, Blackmore is said to be pissed off
        that everyone plays it as chords.
