			Time To Kill
			Deep Purple

Here's a first draft of one of the songs from the new album - rather poppy which
means the main riff isn't particularly difficult. Mostly perfect fourths in
typical Blackmore fashion. I haven't worked out the solo or the bits over the
verse because there's lots going on and I couldn't be bothered

If anyone works out anymore, please send me the details and I'll incorporate it
into a master version.



Time To Kill
Deep Purple
(from 'The Battle Rages On')


Riff 1 (Main)

(P = palm mute briefly before changing chord)
( x = left hand mute and strike strings)

note: 9-P means play 9th position, hold and then mute
      9P mean play 9th position and then mute


(play riff 1 * 4) + through chorus

Consider your position position your defense
Why don't you let me ask you is it coincidence
Feeding speculators on a downhill gravy train
Like vultures ripping out the eyes to reach the dying brain

Listen to the wind - a silent scream

(fill 1)


Tearing at your broken heart
Like a forgotten dream

And there's a time for peace a time for war
Wondering what we've been put here for
A time for giving a time to take
A time for love and a time for hate
A time to beg and a time to steal
So you gamble on that spinning wheel
Of all these things I've had my fill
Lord I need some time to kill

Ten percent of nothing is exactly what you got
You think you've got the given right to take another shot
I'll take away your money all you've got is coloured beads
Find a piece of land where you can sow your seeds

Listen to the wind - a silent scream

(fill 1)

Tearing at your broken heart
Like a forgotten dream

There's a time for passion a time for pain
A time to learn that we're all the same
A time to remember a time to forget
Wondering how we're going to pay our debts
A time for thunder a time for rain
Waiting for the seasons to change
Of all these things I've had my fill
Lord I need some time to kill

repeat both chorus's

[organ outro]
