Johnny Blade Tab

   
Johnny Blade
Black Sabbath - Never Say Die (1978)
Transcriber is truely unknown (They didn't sign their work)

Notes and observations:

Tuning seems to be in Eb(E-Flat)
The keyboard intro in not included, it would be a cool to have.
The solo is off on a couple of bends, but is really close.
Full lyric content is at bottom.
Enjoy!

(Riff A)Tortured and Twisted...

Tortured and twisted
He walks the streets alone
People avoid him
They know the street's his home
Cold blade of silver
His eyes, they burn so wild
Mean as a tiger
Society's own child

Don't you try to burn his blade
You know he'll cut you, Johnny Blade
He's the meanest guy around this town
One look and he will cut you down

Johnny Blade
Johnny Blade

Life has no meaning
And death's his only friend
Will fate surprise him
Where will he meet his end
He feels so bitter
He's so full of hate
To die in the gutter
I guess that's Johnny's fate

Rivals all across the land
He kills them with his knife in hand
He's the meanest guy around this town
One look and he will cut you down

Johnny Blade
Johnny Blade

Well, you know that Johnny's a spider
And his web is the city at night
He's a victim of modern frustration
That's the reason he's so ready to fight

He's the one who should be afraid
What will happen to you Johnny Blade?

Oh, he knows his future's decided
And he ain't gonna to change it, no way
He was born to die in the gutter
He'll keep fighting to the end of his day

He's alone all through his life
His only friend is a switchblade knife
He's the one who should be afraid
What will happen to you Johnny Blade?

You fool the People
Whos fool is who?

It's time to listen
The fool is you!

(Solo)
