Helloween - The Time Of The Oath tab

THE TIME OF THE OATH - HELLOWEEN
Taken from High Live Album
April 3rd 2003

Hi folks. My name is Eduardo Kepczynski.
I had expend many hours listening to this song and trying to play it.
There is little differences between the live and the studio version.
Iīm sure itīs not perfect, but it was the most i could do.
It will help everyone who wants to play this awesome song.
Feel free to add some hammer on, pull off, artificial harmonics and palm mute.
Improvisation rules.
I tabbed only a few solos. The fastest ones i didnt.
I will add them soon.

Tune down 1/2 step.

Any doubt or corrections, please send me an e-mail at
hellowed@terra.com.br
Iīll apreciate.

~ = Vibrato

Lyrics In a circle of fire On a cold winter night I spoke out my desire Made a promise I couldnīt hide, no! In a dream He came along and told me "Your time has come Your mind belongs to me" Itīs the time of the oath The time of the oath My sweetest memories die in the cold Itīs the time of the oath See me covered with sadness And Iīll soon wish to die When the overcoming madness Is eating up my mind Here and now I look back at a good time No more lie - I slowly say good-bye Itīs the time of the oath The time of the oath My sweetest memories die in the cold Itīs the time of the oath In a dream He came along and told me "Your time has come Just slowly say good-bye" Itīs the time of the oath The time of the oath My sweetest memories die in the cold Itīs the time of the oath Latin: Di-es i-rae, di-es il-la Sol-vet sae-cium in fa-villa Quan-tus tre-mor est fu-tu-rus Quan-do ju-dex est ven-turus HAPPY HAPPY HELLOWEEN Eddy Kep
