Solsbury Hill tab ver. 2 with lyrics by Peter Gabriel - Easy chords and tabs for guitar

Peter Gabriel – Solsbury Hill tab ver. 2

Solsbury Hill (album version) - Peter Gabriel
from Peter Gabriel (Car, Rain) 1977

tabbed by Analog Kid
analog.kid@comcast.net

Peter's debut solo single written in 1976 about his departure from Genesis in 1975.

The song is in 7/4 with the last 2 measures of each chorus in 4/4.

There are many versions of this tab, some of which come close and some of which do not 
at all.
This is my interpretation of the studio version transcribed for guitar with bass and 
keyboard accompanyment.

For solo acoustic guitar, I suggest you check out Warren Gash's (saffronboots) Solsbury 
Hill Tutorial
on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-Mp8cTBoIs) in which he presents a hybrid 
version that includes
elements from the keyboard and bass parts.

To keep in silence I resigned My friends would think I was a nut Turning water into wine Open doors would soon be shut So I went from day to day Tho' my life was in a rut "Till I thought of what I'd say Which connection I should cut I was feeling part of the scenery I walked right out of the machinery My heart going boom boom boom "Hey" he said "Grab your things I've come to take you home." (Back home.) When illusion spin her net I'm never where I want to be And liberty she pirouette When I think that I am free Watched by empty silhouettes Who close their eyes but still can see No one taught them etiquette I will show another me Today I don't need a replacement I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant My heart going boom boom boom "Hey" I said "You can keep my things, They've come to take me home."
