Black Sabbath – Children of the Grave

From the CD ‘Master of Reality’
Written by Iommi/Ward/Butler/Osbourne

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.

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

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]

They’ll fight the world until they’ve won [Fill 1]
