tabs:going_to_palestine

tabbed by:stephenp182
note: iffy on riff -- sounds very close though
riff:

b-10-12-12-10-10-10h12p10-9-9-9h11p9-7-7-7h9p7-5-5-5h7p5-3-3-3h5p3-2-2-2h4p2-1-1-1h3p0h2

intro: riff, D, A 
           G              D     A
that woman set herself on fire
             G      D       A
they said it on the radio
                          E                  D
they said she lit off the skies of palestine
                               A      
i could not stand to hear them say so
          E             
i saw the stars come out
          D                       A
i saw the oranges on the trees
G                         D               A
later on they played some carribean song
         G                D         A
man they sure know how to pick 'em
               E                    D
the rich voice burning like a fuse
               A       
the syncopated rhythms
          E
i saw the stars come out
          D
i saw the oranges cracking open
          A
i saw you standing there
               E 
orange blossom in your hair
         D
going to palestine
         A
going to palestine

then instead of picking the riff he seems to strum openly while playing those notes in the same sequence
as with the intro playing a D, does that maybe twice, depending on performance, then ends with hard, single strums using the A chord
