If anyone knows that little thing they have in the outro, you can add
it on to the bottom of the tab and such.

Anyway, the bass part is pretty simple. Just follow along with the
acoustic guitar part. This songs kicks all ass, by the way, one of
the best Metallica has ever made.

VERSE

It's kinda hard to get the right timing with this, so I did this part like
every other person did it, with a Chord sheet. Easier for everyone.

A                     E
New blood joins this earth

D               A
And quickly he's subdued

                         E
Through constant pain disgrace

D                      A
The young boy learns their rules

                          E
With time the child draws in

D                 A
This whipping boy done a wrong

                     E
Deprived of all his thoughts

D                   A
the young man struggles on and on

             C            G
He knows a vow unto his own

C               G
That never from this day

     C                 G    E
His will they'll take away.

LYRICS:

VERSE 1:
New blood joins this earth and quickly he's subdued.
Through constant pain disgrace,the young boy learns their rules.
With time the child draws in this whipping boy done wrong.
Deprived of all his thoughts,the young man struggles on and  on.
He knows a vow unto his own that never from this day
his will they'll take away

CHORUS:
What I've felt, what I've known never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be. Never see. Won't see what might have been.
What I've felt, what I've known,never shined through in what I've shown.
Never free. Never me. So I dub thee unforgiven.

VERSE 2:
They dedicate their lives to running all of his
He tries to please them all, this bitter man he is
Throughout the life the same, he's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win. A tired man they see no longer cares.
The old man then prepares to die regretfully
That old man here is me.


happy bassing...
