THE SUPERMEN from The Man Who Sold The World 


INTRO:         F    G   F    G   F    G   F    G
      Ooh, ah  Ooh, ah  Ooh, ah  Ooh, ah  Ooh, ah


     F           
When all the world was very young
    G
And mountain magic heavy hung
    F
The supermen would walk in file 
G
Guardians of a loveless isle
    A                  G
And gloomy browed with super fear 
      C                                    Esus4
Their tragic endless lives could heave nor sigh 
                         E
In solemn perverse serenity 
                        F        G
Wonderous beings chained to life


CHORUS 1:
F       G
Strange games they would play then 
F  G 
No death for the perfect men
Ab   Bb
Life rolls into one for them 
Am F        Ab        C
So softly a super God cries


F    G   F    G
Ooh, ah  Ooh, ah

      
      F
Where all were minds in uni-thought 
G
Power weird by mystics taught
   F
No pain no joy no power too great 
  G
Colossal strength to grasp a fate
      A               G
Where sad eyed mermen tossed in slumber 
C                                     Esus4
Nightmare dreams no mortal mind could hold
                            E
Man would tear his brothers flesh 
                           F     G
A chance to die to turn to mould


CHORUS 2:
F   G
Far out in the red sky 
F   G
Far out from the sad eyes 
Ab      Bb
Strange mad celebration 
Am F        Ab        C
So softly a super God cries


SOLO:  D  E  D  E  D  E  F#  G  A  B
       A  B  A  B  A  B  C  D  
       C  D  C  D  C  D  C


CHORUS 3:
F   G
Far out in the red sky 
F   G
Far out from the sad eyes 
Ab      Bb
Strange mad celebration 
Am F        Ab        C
So softly a super God cries
