F
Shah shah a go go (x6)

(note: at this point in the song there are no chords as such, just
ascending bass and keyboards, I'm unsure as to what Hugh plays
during this outro)

bass notes: Bb5 B5 Db5 Eb5, E5 F5 Gb5 G5,
            Ab5 A5 Bb5 B5, C5 Db5 D5 Eb5,
            D5 C5 A5 Gb5 E5
keyboard enters: D5 C5 A5

the song ends on G, in which the band do a quick reprise of the main
riff of 'Ice'.
