Subject: TAB: superman.tab by Goldfinger

 

Song: Superman

Band: Goldfinger

Album: Hang-ups (1997)

Written by John from Goldfinger

Transcribed by Luke Knox (lukeknox@iname.com)

 

This is my version of a great song by a cool band, Goldfinger. I'm pretty

sure about most of it, but let me know if you have any suggestions,

changes, etc.

 

Intro: (played in the order given and with ska upstrokes)

D A Em Bm Em F#m Em

E--5----5----7----2----7----9----7---*12-12-9-9-10-10-9-

B--7----5----8----3----8---10----8----------------------

G--7----6----9----4----9---11----9----------------------

D--7----7----9----4----9---11----9----------------------

A-------------------------------------------------------

E-------------------------------------------------------

(*Play this 1st time only. After this, play A in place of riff)

The second time this is played, I believe a second guitar comes in with

the bass playing these barre chords, and it gets louder as the

progression goes on:

E-------------------------------------

B-------------------------------------

G--7-------9---4---9---11---12--------

D--7---7---9---4---9---11---12---7----

A--5---7---7---2---7----9---10---7----

E------5-------------------------5----

D A E B E F# G A

 

(Play this while 1st guitar keeps playing the ska progression)

D A E B E

So here I am, doing everything I can. Holding on to what I

F# G A

am, pretending I'm a superman.

 

(Verse:)(ska upstrokes)

D A Em Bm

I'm trying to keep the ground on my feet.

G D A

It seems the world's falling down around me.

D A Em Bm

The nights are all long, I'm singing this song

G D A

to try and make the answers more than maybe.

 

(This part uses barre chords:)

G D A G E D G

And I'm so con-fused, about what to do, sometimes I wanna

A D

throw it all away.

 

D A Em Bm Em

So here I am, looking older all the time. Growing older

F#m Em A

all the time, feeling younger in my mind.

 

D A Em Bm

I'm trying to sleep. I lost count of sheep.

G D A D

My mind is racing faster every minute. What could

A Em Bm G

I do more? Yeah I'm really not sure. I know I'm

D A

running circles but I can't quit.

G D A G E D

And I'm so confused about what to do.

G A

Sometimes I want to throw it all away.

 

(Bridge, using these chords:)

Am Em Bm

E---5---7---7----

B---5---8---7----

G---5---9---7----

D---7---9---9----

A---7-------9----

E---5-------7----

Am Bm

Controlling everything in sight, I'm feeling weak I don't

Em Am Bm

feel right. You're telling me I have to change, telling me

Em Am Bm

to act my age. But if all that I can do is just sit and

Em Am

watch time go, then I'll have to say goodbye. Life's too

Bm Em Hi F Hi G

short to watch it fly, so watch it flyyyyyyyyyy.

 

Solo:

E----------5-------------------------------7-5--------

B------5-7---7-5-----5-------------------------7-7-5--

G----7-----------4-7---7-7-6-6-4---4-7-4-7-------7-6--

D--------------------------------5--------------------

A--5--------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------

This is played twice, and that's the song!

 

E-mail me with any complaints, compliments, or anything in between.

Thanks, and I hope you like the tab!

 

Luke
