       Black Sabbath - Children of the Grave

        From the CD 'Master of Reality'
                Written by Iommi/Ward/Butler/Osbourne
                Warner Bros. Records  2562-2

        Tune down 1 and 1/2 steps for this song. I think every song on
"Master of Reality" was tuned down in this manner. Maybe. The key is C#,
or E if you imagine it being played with standard tuning. You can play
this song exactly like a song in E, and you'll be in key. And yes, I got
the solo from a magazine (Guitar, March 1996).

e -> c#
B -> G#
G -> E
D -> B
A -> F#
E -> C#

With [Riff 3]:

Revolution in their minds, [Fill 1] the children start to march [Fill 1]
Against the world in which they have to live in [Fill 1]
Oh the hate that's in their hearts. [Fill 1]
They're tired of being pushed around [Fill 1] and told just what to do.
[Fill 1]
They'll fight the world until they've won [Fill 1]

With [Riff 4]:

and love comes flowing through, yeah!

[Riff 2] x1
[Riff 1] x2

With [Riff 3]:

Children of tomorrow live in [Fill 1] the tears that fall today. [Fill 1]
Will the sunrise of tomorrow bring in [Fill 1] peace in any way? [Fill 1]
Must the world live in the shadow [Fill 1] of atomic fear? [Fill 1]
Can they win the fight for peace [Fill 1]

With [Riff 4]:

or will they disappear? Yeah!

With [Riff 3]:

So you children of the world [Fill 1] listen to what I say. [Fill 1]
If you want a better place to live in, [Fill 1] spread the words today.
[Fill 1]
Show the world that love is still [Fill 1] alive, you must be brave.
[Fill 1]
Or you children of today [Fill 1]

With [Riff 4]:

are children of the grave, YEAH!!!!
