A note about the "Taurus Pedal 'Sweep' sound" - this is actually an analog
synth (probably an Oberheim) playing octaves. The resonance of the synth is
set high and filter is set to sweep from top to bottom. Play the lowest E
on
the synth plus an octave above simultaneously and you'll get this sound.
Live, Alex triggers this sound with his pedals. While it's probably just a
sampled sound now, in the good old days before MIDI, Alex had Moog Taurus
pedals interfaced with an Oberheim synth off-stage. The Taurus pedals
didn't
actually make this sound but rather doubled it with a thick bass pedal tone
(or else the Taurus pedal settings would have had to be changed throughout
the
set and I don't believe that the pedals were programmable).


Lyrics

A modern-day warrior
Mean mean stride,
Today's Tom Sawyer
Mean mean pride.

Though his mind is not for rent,
Don't put him down as arrogant.
His reserve, a quiet defense,
Riding out the day's events.
The river.

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society.
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift.

The world is, the world is,
Love and life are deep,
Maybe as his eyes are wide.

Today's Tom Sawyer,
He gets high on you,
And the space he invades
He gets by on you.

Guitar Solo

No, his mind is not for rent
To any god or government.
Always hopeful, yet discontent,
He knows changes aren't permanent,
But change is.

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society.
Catch the witness, catch the wit,
Catch the spirit, catch the spit.

The world is, the world is,
Love and life are deep,
Maybe as his skies are wide.

Exit the warrior,
Today's Tom Sawyer,
He gets high on you,
And the energy you trade,
He gets right on to the friction of the day.



Disclaimer:
This tablature represents how the song is played as closely as reasonably
achievable to the studio recording. Video footage was utilized as much
as possible to validate the information (Exit Station Left, LeStudio
version, A Show of Hands). Alex Lifeson may have played it slightly
differently.





Tablature Explanation:
NT = Nashville Tuning is when the low E, A and D strings are replaced with
lighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal.
| = bar separating measures
~ = vibrato
x = percussive note with no pitch; muted note
. = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h = hammer
p = pull
s = slide (used when \ or / don't fit)
^ = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
r = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)
t = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
x/ = pick slide up
x\ = pick slide down
<5> = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
(5) = note sustained from previous measure
o =\ repeat sign
o =/
DC = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials
you go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
DS = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
only as far as the (%) sign.
Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that brings
it to a formal close.
Al
Coda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the end
section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
RF = repeat and fade
rit = "ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.
Tunning: Standard (E A D G B e)
