F       /E        F    /E    G        /E    G     /E
When all the world was very young mountain magic heavy hung
    F    /E        F       /E   G         /E   G        /E
The supermen would walk in file guardians of a loveless isle
    Am               Am/G   
And gloomy brow with super fear
      C                                    Bm7
Their endless tragic lives could heave nor sigh
                          E                     F        /E  F /E G /E G /E
And solemn perverse serenity wonderous beings chained to life
F       G                          F  G          
Strange games they would play then no death for the perfect men
Ab   Bb                      Am Am/G F        Ab       C
Life rolls into one for them,   so   softly a supergod cries

Repeat.

About the artist behind The Supermen:

"Ashes to Ashes" is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, also a #1 hit. As well as its musical qualities, it is noted for its innovative video, directed by Bowie and David Mallet. Bowie has said that with this song he was "wrapping up the seventies really for myself, and that seemed a good enough epitaph for it".[1]
