Stare at the rain that's falling.

She waits in the air,

Chrous Riff 1b)

She sleeps in a chair,

In her sad America.

Long, long is the night alone,
Long, like the notes I'm sending.

(*) Fripp improvises on this bit, so try different things out. Mostly triple stops. e.g.,
__5-sl-7__5-sl-7_|___ __5-sl-7__5-sl-7_|___ __4-sl-6__4-sl-6_|___ _________________|___ _________________|___ 0________________|__0 etc.

I recommend doing stretching exercises before attempting it. I recommend using a thumb fret for the bass string, but if you can finger it some other way, go for it!)
