Some explanations:
1.For the intro and RIFF 7 you must fret the low E string on the 1st
fret, prebend a whole step and then release (that's what the R means).
2.Blank columns (as in Riff 1) do not count in timing. They are used 
only to distinguish the tab numbers.
3.p=pull-off h=hammer on

Song flow and lyrics:

[Intro] X3

[Riff 1] X2

w/Riff 2

Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind?

Can he walk at all? Or if he moves will he fall?

[Riff 1]

w/Riff 2

Is he 'live or dead? Has he thoughts within his head?

We'll just pass him there. Why should we even care?

[Riff 3]

[Riff 1] X2

w/Riff 2

He was turned to steel in a great magnetic field

Where he traveled time for the future of mankind

w/Riff 4

Nobody wants him. He just stares at the world

[Riff 5]

w/Riff 4

Planning his 

vengeance that he will soon unfold

[Riff 5]

[Riff 1] X2

w/Riff 2

Now the time is here for Iron Man to spread fear

Vengeance from the grave kills all the people he once saved

w/Riff 4

Nobody wants him. They just turn their heads

[Riff 5]

Nobody hepls him. Now he has his revenge
