THE SUPERMEN- David Bowie

 

F* G*

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

Am Am/G F

And gloomy browed with superfear their tragic endless lives

E

Could heave nor sigh

 

In solemn, perverse serenity

F* G*

Wonderous beings chained to life

 

CHORUS #1:

F G F G

Strange games they would play then, no death for the perfect men

Ab Bb Am F Ab C

Life rolls into one for them, so softly a supergod cries

 

Where all were minds in uni-thought

Power wierd by mystics taught

No pain, no joy, no power too great

Colossal stength to grasp a fate

Where sad eyed mermen tossed in slumber

Nightmare dreams no mortal mind could hold

Man would tear his brother's flesh

A chance to die, to turn to mold

 

CHORUS #2:

Far out in the red sky, far out from the sad eyes

Strange, mad celebration, so softly a supergod cries

 

CHORUS #3:

Far out in the red sky, far out from the sad eyes

Strange, mad celebration, so softly, a supergod dies

 

 

 

F*: alternate bass notes between F and E

G*: alternate bass notes between G and E

 

 

NOTE: From The Man Who Sold the World, 1971, but I figured this out from

the more acoustic bonus track version on (I think) Hunky Dory.

This is just my best guess- any improvements are welcome.
