Superman

Capo None

D xx0232
Bm x24432
G 320033 / 320003

This song is super easy cause it only has 3 chords, and most part is just in the D chord.
If you play a lead guitar, the scale played in the Instrumental part is just D Major pentatonic.

Or you can use B minor pentatonic cause both D major and B minor are relatives in the scale (note: In the last part he mixed B minor pentatonic with a D minor pentatonic that’s why it sounded bluesy)
If you can play the lead guitar part with a slides, it is much better.

[Verse 1]
        D
I'm a survivor

But we're trapped in a video game
                             G
And I don't wanna play with fire
                       D
I just wanna get home safe
      A                                  G
But I still feel like you're superman, so
                         D
How could I forget your name?
        D
I'm in disguise, yeah

And I'm living in a house of glass
                    G 
Everyone's looking at me

They don't even know that I'm acting
                       D
On the other side and laughing

[Refrain]
     A        
I've been here for twenty-two years
     G                                  D
Seen twenty-two guys in the same year........

[Refrain]
     A        
I've been here for twenty-two years
     G                                  D
Seen twenty-two guys in the same year........

[Verse 2]
               D
Sometimes the silence

Makes a whole lotta noise
                               G
When it all gets a little bit louder
I lose my superpowers
                     D
I don't even have a choice
   A                           
I wonder when I'll understand that
G                       D
I'm not your superman anymore
                D
You know I'm a provider

So why you take care of me?
                              G
Yeah, I know that I'm always changing

And IRL but I'm faking that
           D
My life's amazing

[Refrain]
     A        
I've been here for twenty-two years
     G                                  D
Seen twenty-two guys in the same year........
