"Thunderstruck" as written by and Angus Mckinnon Young Malcolm Mitchell Young....
[Repeat: x10]
(Thunder)

I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track (Thunder)(of a lightning attack)
I looked round
And I knew there was no turning back (Thunder)
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do (Thunder)
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you (Thunder)

Sound of the drums
Beatin' in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You've been thunderstruck

Rode down the highway
Broke the limit, we hit the town
Went down to Texas, yeah Texas
And we had some fun
We met some girls
Some dancers who gave a good time
Broke all the rules, played all the fools
Yeah, yeah, they, they, they blew our minds

I was shakin' at the knees
Could I come again please?
Yeah the ladies were too kind
You've been - thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck

Yeah
Oh, thunderstruck, yeah

Now we're shaking at the knees
Could I come again please?

Thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Yeah yeah yeah, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah

Said yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine
Yeah, it's alright
We're doing fine
(So fine)

Thunderstruck, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Thunderstruck, thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Whoa baby, baby, thunderstruck
You've been thunderstruck, thunderstruck
Thunderstruck, thunderstruck, thunderstruck
You've been thunderstruck

    General Commentin my thought, this is an awsome song. that beginning riff on the guitar just blows my mind away. i've tried playing it many times and its a lot harder than you'd think to play. its all good though. wicked song though. a classic.

    General Commentthe open notes are pulloffs, but angus actually picks the other notes, which you will see if you watch him play live. often on tab sites you will see the song played as one long hammer/pull-off, which is a lot easier and sounds almost the same as the real thing.

    General CommentLike every AC/DC song, it's just about havin a good time.

    But the intro is on the B string, not the E string.

    General Commentthis song kicks ass......see the bit where he says "sound of the guns" and the guitar starts in the background, im odd, i think tht bit rocks so much. Its one of their best songs, but not their best

    General Commentthe into tabbed up there is almost perfect except for being said on the wrong string and it goes

    0h4p0h7p0h5p0h8p0 (each little frase is played more times but i am too lazy to tabbed the rest)

    this is from ultimate-guitar.com, check it out.

    General Commentthis is AC DC's answer to Queen's We Will Rock You

    this is always over used by sports events and rodeo's
