"Requiem For The Masses"
                              (Terry Kirkman)

Jim Yester, in the liner notes to the Japanese _From The Original Master
Tapes_ CD (Warner/Pioneer WPCP-3536):

  Written during the peak of the Vietnam War, this flip side of "Never My
  Love" soon became an underground hit, and its stark dramatic tone and
  shockingly beautiful requiem mass parts [became] a favorite at live
  concerts.

Note: guitar is capoed at 4th fret; chords are notated in brackets
