the supermen David Bowie
From: Harlan L Thompson 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.
