"SUPERNAUT" Black Sabbath

As heard on Black Sabbath, Vol. 4 (VICTOR)


Words and Music by Frank lommi, Terence Butl er, William Ward and Jo hn Osbourne • Transcri bed by Andy A ledort

I want to reach out and touch the sky


I want to touch the sun but I don't need to fly
I'm gonna clim b up every mountain of the moon
And find the di sh tha t ran away with the spoon

I've crossed the ocean. turned every bend


I found the crossing near the golden rainbow's end
I've been through magic and thr ough life's reality
I've lived a thousand years. it never bothered me

Got no religion. don' t need no fr i ends


Got all I want and I don't need to pretend
Don't try to reach me 'cause I'd tear up your mind
I've seen the future and I've left it behind

All guitar s are tuned down one and one half steps (low to high: C# F# B E G# C# ).
Bass tuning (low to high: C# F# B E).
All notes and chords sound a minor third (one and one half steps) lower than written (key of C# mino r).
