[ Предположительная тональность: Em ] Music and lyrics copyright Metallica. For personal, noncommercial use only. [NOTES] 1) Strum pattern of verses follows the sung lyrics. 2) Am7 in "one eye open" is the two-finger version--same as Am but lift ring finger on "-pen" syllable. 3) On the instrumental bridge and outro: Between the Em and Am chords, pluck the two non-open notes-- the low D and low A strings--of the Em chord before going to Am. You can actually hit any two notes of the Em chord, as long as the first one is higher. It's just an easier version of the intro, since this is for novices. 4) In the verses, damp the strings for all chords except the final G, which you strum a few times. [INTRO] In Em chord position: Open low E string, D string, G string, D string , open low A, D string. then low E again. (x3) Then use ring finger rapidly on/off low E string to finish riff. (Pluck or hammer-on.) [Pause for emphasis/suspense.) [VERSE 1] Em Am Say your prayers, little one Am Em Don't forget, my son Em G To include everyone Em Am I tuck you in, warm within Am Em Keep you free from sin Em G Till the Sandman, he comes [PRE-CHORUS] (Legato/gently) Am Am7 Sleep with one eye o- pen (Now strum the D downward twice hard and mute it) D (x2) N.C. Gripping your pillow tight [CHORUS] Em G Em Ex- it light (Optional: Sounds cool if you pluck the open low E repeatedly to fill here) Em G D En- ter night Em G G Take my hand Em N.C. Off to Never-Never Land [INSTR BRIDGE] Em Am Em Am Em Am G Em [VERSE 2] Em Am Something's wrong, shut the light Am Em Heavy thoughts to- night Em G And they aren't Snow White Em Am Dreams of war, dreams of lies Am Em Dreams of dragon's fire Em G And of things that will bite [PRE-CHORUS] Am Am7 Sleep with one eye o-pen D (hard strike twice, then mute before singing:) N.C. Gripping your pillow tight [CHORUS] Em G Em Ex- it light [Optional: Sounds cool if you hit the low E repeatedly to fill here] Em G D En- ter night Em G G Take my hand Em N.C. Off to Never-Never Land [INSTR BRIDGE] Em Am Em Am Em Am G Em [SPOKEN INTERLUDE] (Softly strum over lyrics, spoken menacingly:) Am Now I lay me down to sleep Em I pray the Lord my soul to keep Am If I die before I wake Em I pray the Lord my soul to take [VOCAL BRIDGE] Em A Hush, little baby; don't say a word Em A And never mind that noise you heard Em A It's just the beasts under your bed A C (sustain) In your closet, in your head [CHORUS] Em G Em Ex- it light [Optional: Pluck open low E x7] Em G D Enter night Em G Take my hand Em N.C.
