Superstition

Stevie Wonder

------------------.................


It's, essentially, a blues, so it's major, but with flattened thirds in the melody only.
Written on the black notes of the keyboard, the nearest guitar approximation is the key of E.

Verses are all just E (or E7 if you like).

 E7
Very super-stitious, writing's on the  wall,
 E7
Very super-stitious ladders bout' to fall,
 E7
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
 E7
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

Chorus 1:

 B9C9-5B9Bb9-5
When you be-lieve in things that you don't under-stand,
 A7B7E7
Then you suffer,     Superstition ain't the way

Verse 2:

 E7
Very super-stitious, wash your face and hands ,
 E7
Rid me of the problem, ]do all that you can,
 E7
Keep me in a daydream keep me goin' strong,
 E7
You don't wanna save me, sad is my song.

Chorus 2:

 B9C9-5B9Bb9-5
When you be-lieve in things that you don't under-stand,
 A7B7E7
Then you suffer,     Superstition ain't the way

Verse 3:

 E7
Very super-stitious, nothin' more to say,
 E7
Very super-stitious the devil's on his way,
 E7
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass
 E7
Seven years of bad luck, the good things in your past

Chorus 3:

 B9C9-5B9Bb9-5
When you be-lieve in things that you don't under-stand,
 A7B7E7
Then you suffer,     Superstition ain't the way
