Metallica bass tabs for Phantom lord

Bass tabs with lyrics

The people who transcribed it :

Jeff Jacobson - Anesthesia - Pulling Teeth
Andy Aledort - Jump in the Fire
Steve Gorenberg - the rest

The only thing I've done is converting them to ascii.

I've put all note lengths below the measures, they are :
w - whole note
h - half note
q - quarter note
e - eigth note
s - sixteenth note
t - thirty-second note
l - long note ('fermate' sign)
x+y - play note with length x+y

/ - a couple of these mean you have to fill the length with
  1. eight notes     (1 slash)  or
  2. sixteenth notes   (2 slashes) or
  3. thirty-second notes (3 slashes)

R - in the tab denotes a rest.
x - an undefined or muted note.
[ 3 ] - a triplet

/ - slide up
/(X) - slide up to fret X, but don't pick X
\ - slide down
\(X) - slide down to fret X, but don't pick X
T - tap note
Harm - harmonic
A.H. - Artificial harmonic

inside bar :
p - pull off
h - hammer on
bx - bend string x notes up
bx r - bend string x notes up and release string

a note without a length indication, means a 'ghost' note (The little notes
that occur in sheet music sometimes).

cresc. - crescendo (Play louder and louder, 'fade in')

Lyrics :
 1. Sound is ripping through your ears
  The deaf'ning sound of metal nears
  Your body's waiting for his whips
  The taste of leather on your lips

 Chorus :
  Hear the cry of war
  Louder than before
  With his sword in hand
  To control the land
  Crushing metal strikes
  On this fright'ning night
  Fall on to your knees
  For the Phantom Lord

 2. Victim falling under chains
  You hear them crying dying pains
  Fists of terror breaking through
  Now there's noting you can do

 Chorus

 3. The leathered armies have prevailed
  The Phantom Lord has never failed
  Smoke it lifting from the ground
  The rising volume metal sound

 Chorus

  Fall to your knees
  And bow to the Phantom Lord

Almost there ...
