From: Harlan L Thompson




F* G*


When all the world was very young


And mountain magic heavy hung


The supermen would walk in file


Guardians of a loveless isle

Am Am/G F

And gloomy browed with superfear their tragic endless lives


Could heave nor sigh


In solemn, perverse serenity

F* G*

Wonderous beings chained to life




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



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

Strange, mad celebration, so softly a supergod cries



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.
