Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


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).

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

Chorus 1:

When you be-[B9]lieve in [C9-5]things that you [B9]don't under-[Bb9-5]stand,
Then you [A7]suffer,  [B7]   Superstition ain't the [E7]way

Verse 2:

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

Chorus 2:

When you be-[B9]lieve in [C9-5]things that you [B9]don't under-[Bb9-5]stand,
Then you [A7]suffer,  [B7]   Superstition ain't the [E7]way

Verse 3:

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

Chorus 3:

When you be-[B9]lieve in [C9-5]things that you [B9]don't under-[Bb9-5]stand,
Then you [A7]suffer,  [B7]   Superstition ain't the [E7]way
