RIFF: Dm e---5-5--5--5-5-5-5-5--5- B---6-6--5--6-6-6-6-6--5- G---7-7--5--7-7-7-7-7--5- D---7-7--5--7-7-7-7-7--5- A---5-5--5--5-5-5-5-5--5- D-0------0-------------0- NOTE: This riff is played during the verses and sometimes inbetween 'em. Listen to the record and you'll get the idea pretty fast. You can also play this in standard tuning. I just like the extra bass note you get in the riff when tuning down the E string. You choose.. :) INTRO RIFF Said the condor To the praying mantis We're gonna lose this place Just like we lost Atlantis Brother we got to go Sooner than you know. The gypsy told my fortune. She said that nothin showed. Who put the bomb? On the sacred altar. Why should we die? If it comes our way? And why should we care. About a little button being pushed by someone we don't even know? CHORUS: Bb F Well I wish I was an Aztec Bb F Or a runner in Peru. Bb Dm I would build such beautiful buildings C F to house the chosen few. C Like an Inca from Peru. RIFF (Like an Inca) If you want to get high build a stong foundation Sink those pylons deep And reach for the sky. If you want to get lost in the jungle rythm Get down on the ground And pretend your swimming. If you want to put ice in the Lava river. First you must climb then you must stand and shiver. Brother we gotta go Sooner than you know The gypsy told my fortune. The gypsy told my fortune. The gypsy told my fortune. She said that nothing showed RIFF CHORUS: Well I wish I was an Aztec Or a runner in Peru. I would build such beautiful buildings to house the chosen few. Like an Inca from Peru.

Like an Inca from Peru. RIFF (Like an Inca...) CHORUS 2: (same chords as CHORUS) I feel sad, but I feel happy as I'm coming back to home. There's a bridge across the river. That I have to cross alone. Like a skipping rolling stone. RIFF (Like an Inca...) REPEAT: RIFF If you want to get high build a foundation Sink those pylons deep And reach for the sky. Brother we gotta go we gotta go The gypsy told my fortune. The gypsy told my fortune. The gypsy told my fortune. The gypsy told my fortune. She said that nothing showed She said that nothing showed REPEAT AND FADE: RIFF ---------------------------------------------- NOTE: Chuck Naughton suggested that this should be played with a capo at the fifth fret to make it easier. Try it out and see which you like the best.
