Wait for the ricochet

(INSTRUMENTAL)
2. verse (as first)
Sweet child in time you'll see the line
The line that's drawn between the good and the bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying taking toll
If you've been bad, Lord I bet you have
And you've not been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes you'd better bow your head
Wait for the ricochet

G G Am / G G Am / F F G / G G Am
(Same chord sequence repeated (four times) with the infamous screams over)
(INSTRUMENTAL - "FINALE")
(Screams and ad lib)

Tablature:
Hi there! My name is Stas, or Flying Paranoid, or Paranoid for short. I play the guitar in Russia (I never say "live"-- I can't live without playing the guitar!). I've just finished tabbing the greatest DP's song "Chlid in time", and so I send it to you, maybe you'll find it useful someway... p.s. I'm sorry if there are any mistakes in my English......... Bye!

-- Child In Time --
tabbed by Flying Paranoid (sgkogan@ufanet.ru ,ICQ=10245085)
INTRO:
Clear sound
Softly
* = (legato) = let the chord/note ring 'till the next chord is picked
> = accent the note/chord
b = bend
p = pull off
h = hammer on
/\= bend and release
~~= vibrato
* * *
e|---------------|---------------|----------------|----------------------|
b|---------------|---------------|----------------|----------------------|
G|---------------|---------------|----------------|----------------------|
D|---------------|---------------|----------------|----------------------|
A|----------5--5-|-7--------5--5-|-7---------3--3-|-5------------5--5--7-|
E|----------3--3-|-5--------3--3-|-5---------1--1-|-3------------3--3--5-|
Then repeat the whole riff.
VERSE and CHORUS:
You've got to repeat INTRO only. The difference is in the volume of
your guitar, listen to the record to fix it. Also, listen to the song attentively
to catch R.Blackmore's tricks w/tremelo, hammer-ons and pull-offs, I'm too lazy
to show them all.
During some bars of the chorus you'll play following :
* * * *
e|---------------|---------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------|
b|---------------|---------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------|
G|---------------|---------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------|
D|---------------|---------------|----------------|--------------------|-----------|
