Guitar tabs with lyrics

Album: Kill'em All

 I have included the rest of the song (except the solos), since
there was just a small part of it in the old version (Intro, Main Riff =
and
another riff). The timing may not be correct while reading the tab, but
you can get it easily by listening to the song.
PM - Palm Mute
~  - Let it ring


***


Intro (basically A's and B's)
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-2----2--2----2--2--2----2--2----2----4----4--4----4--4--4----4--4---|
|-2----2--2----2--2--2----2--2----2----4----4--4----4--4--4----4--4---|
|-0----0--0----0--0--0----0--0----0----2----2--2----2--2--2----2--2---|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|


Main Riff (played many times during the entire song)
|------------------------|---------------------|
|------------------------|---------------------|
|*-----------------7--9--|--------------------*|
|*--7--9--9--9--9--5--7--|--7--9--9--9--9--7--*|
|---5--7--7--7--7--------|--5--7--7--7--7--5---|
|------------------------|---------------------|

This riff is played a couple of times between the Main Riff
(after 6x when the song starts, then every 2x) and the chorus:


Riff 2:
"Sound is ripping..."
|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|
|---2~~------5----4--------|    =20
|---2~~------5----4--5--4--|
|---0~~------3----2--5--4--|
|--------------------3--2--|


After the combination of Main Riff and Riff 2, comes the Chorus.


Chorus (2x):
"Hear the cry of war..."               "To control the land!"
|--------------------------|          |--------------------------| =20
|--------------------------|          |--------------------------|
|--------------------------| 3x then  |--------------------------|
|---7--5--7--4--5----------|          |---7--5--4--5--4----------|
|---7--5--7--4--5----------|          |---7--5--4--5--4----------|
|---5--3--5--2--3----------|          |---5--3--2--3--2----------|


The song goes for another combination of Main Riff and Riff 2 (just
like the first one), then the Chorus again and the 1st solo starts.


The rhythm guitar goes like this during this solo:

|--------------------------|       |--------------------------|
|--------------------------|       |--------------------------|
|---5--4--5----------------| 4x    |------------5--4----------| 4x
|---5--4--5--4--5----------|       |---5--4--5--5--4----------|
|---3--2--3--4--5----------|       |---5--4--5--3--2----------|
|------------2--3----------|       |---3--2--3----------------|


Both of them are played 2x, then:

                                   (no distortion in this part)
|--------------------------|       |-----------------------------------|
|--------------------------|       |------------------------------0----|
|---5~~4~~2~~1~~-----------|  ->   |----0-------0-------0--------------| = 8x
|-----------------5-4-2----|       |------2-------2-------2-----2------|
|-----------------5-4-2----|       |--2-------2-------2-------2--------|
|-----------------3-2-0----|       |--------3-------2-------1-------0--|
                 \-PM--/


Distortion is on again:

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|*---------------------------------------------------------------*| 4x
|*---2-----2--2--2-----5--5--5--5-----4--4--4--4-----3--3--3--3--*|
|----2-----2--2--2-----5--5--5--5-----4--4--4--4-----3--3--3--3---|
|----0-----0--0--0-----3--3--3--3-----2--2--2--2-----1--1--1--1---|
           \--PM-----------PM-------------PM-------------PM---/


Make some noise with these E's:

|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|---2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2---|
|---2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2---|
|---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0---|


Now the 2nd solo starts. The rhythm guitar plays Riff 2 4x, but instead
of playing the Main Riff between them, he plays Palm-Muted E's very =
fast.


When the 2nd solo is over, the song goes back to the the first part
(Main Riff 2x - Riff 2 - Main Riff 2x - Riff 2 - Main Riff 2x - Chorus)
except that the chorus is played one last time without vocals, before
this:

|----------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------|
|----------4~~-----------7~~-----9~9~9~9~9~~~~~|
|---2~~----4~~----5~~----7~~-----9~9~9~9~9~~~~~|
|---2~~----2~~----5~~----5~~-----7~7~7~7~7~~~~~|
|---0~~-----------3~~------------0~0~0~0~0~~~~~|


And, to finish the song:

|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|
|----------------------------|=20
|-----7----5----4--5--4--2---|=20
|-----7----5----4--5--4--2---|
|---0-5--0-3--0-2--3--2--0---|
   PM   PM   PM
