The saxophone part transcribed to guitar... (Guitar 2 The entire time) † The notes beneath the tab are the notes for saxophone players, or if you're sick of reading tabs and want to learn some music theory! † Play along w/cd or you'll have no clue what's going on! † Also,if something doesn't sound right, try playing on a different string. I accidentally tabbed parts of it on the wrong string. I think I corrected all of them, but I can't be certain. Please notify me of this if you find it. First part (Sax intro)

Here are the lyrics in full, taken from CD booklet: © Capitol records, 1973 Us, and them And after all we're only ordinary men Me, and you God only knows it's not what we would choose to do "Forward!" he cried, from the rear And the front rank died And the general sat, and the lines on the map Moved from side to side Black, and blue And who knows which is which and who is who Up and Down And in the end it's only round and round and round "Haven't you heard it's a battle of words" The poster bearer cried "Listen, son," said the man with the gun, "There's room for you inside" Down and out It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about With, without And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about Out of the way, it's a busy day I've got things on my mind For want of the price of tea and a slice The old man died
