These are just the chords up to the jam after the second chorus.

Intro guitar part over Benny Hill bass line (it's in Bb):

                                     P       P
E|-----------|---------4-|---------6-4---3-----------|

E|-----------|-----------|---------------------------|

Bb                                F/A                 Eb
I press on the elastic sheet, I'm breathing through a slice
G                  Bb                Dd                   B
'Are they worms or are the serpents?' bubbled through the ice

Ab/C                   B      G/B                F
The source was quite invisible, the ever-present voice
      A/E                E                 B                 Bb
While skating, both legs tracing different shapes, I made my choice

Next vers has the same chords, except that just before going to a chorus, the last chord is an E instead of a Bb.

Chorus:
G                  D
He's fallen on the ice it cracks
Dm7              C
Will he plunge in and join me here?
G                     D
Meets my eyes to my suprise
F                           D
Laughs the full light of my frown

My double wants to pull me down

E

That little chromatic riff goes like this:  
       E  Eb     D      Db   Bb  A      Ab     G
E|-----16-15--15-14--14-13-|-10--9---9--8---8--7-|
B|-----17-16--16-15--15-14-|-11-10--10--9---9--8-|
G|-----16-15--15-14--14-13-|-10--9---9--8---8--7-|
D|-------------------------|---------------------|
A|-------------------------|---------------------|
E|-------------------------|---------------------|
Bass:   E                     Bb

The second time this happens it goes:  
       E  Eb     D      Db    C  B      Bb     A
E|-----16-15--15-14--14-13-|-12-11--11--10--10--9-|
B|-----17-16--16-15--15-14-|-13-12--12--11--11-10-|
G|-----16-15--15-14--14-13-|-12-11--11--10--10--9-|
D|-------------------------|----------------------|
A|-------------------------|----------------------|
E|-------------------------|----------------------|
Bass:   E                     C

   This is a sick tune.  There is a lot of playing in it, so
   be ready for a challenge.  The key is to listen for phrases
   and learn the song piece by piece.  I am unsure of some of the
   chordal sections, so any help would be appreciated.   As always,
   listen to the Rift version for exact timings.

     Now here is where it gets really tricky.  I am not 100% sure 
     if they are just playing augmented chords all the way up.  
     But it was the closest I could get to the sound.  Use the same
     fingering for all the augmented chords.  The rhythm is based on
     4 different patterns that each member is playing at different 
     times.  Listen to the album to get the right timing.

        Again, I am not sure of the chords for this section.  What 
        I have seems to work, but I'm sure it's not even close.

      It then sounds like the band goes to a G-Bb vamp for Page's 
      keyboard solo.  Again, that is probably inaccurate.  

      ON CUE- Go back to Theme 1 holding out that last D note a 
              few beats longer before leading back to the final 
              chorus.

        I am unsure of the last chord.  It may be a C/C#.

    I hope this transcription will give everyone lots to work on.
    I sure gave me a lot.  If anyone has any corrections, feel free
    to submit them.   ----Billy
