This is 4 semitones higher than the original recording. Either capo on 9 or transpose if 
like it lower :)

PS: All "D" chords are really D/F# if you want to be particularly picky.

Intro

Verse 1

G D/F# G

G   D/F# G        D/F#
Tar-zan, wasn't a ladies man,
G         D              G             D         Bm      A     Bm
He'd just come along and scoop them up under his arm like that, quick as a
A          Em       A
cat in the jungle.

G         D         G           D
But Clark Kent, now there was a real gent,
G        D             G           D         
    A
He would not be caught sittin' aro-und in no jungle scape
Bm         A         Em         A
Dumb as an ape doing nothing.

Chorus

G              A               D          D/E   
G
Superman never made any money, saving the world from Solomon Grundy,
    D           G           D                G       
   A
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man, like him.


Verse 2

G   D    G          D
Hey Bob, Supe had a straight job
G    D                    G                   D      
    Bm     A
Even though he could have smashed through any bank in the United States
Bm         A               Em             G
He had the strength but he would not
G     D        G            D
Folks said his family were all dead
G            D            G           D              
  Bm    A
Their planet crumbled but Superman he forced himself to carry on
   Bm       A            Em      A
Forget Kryp-ton and keep going

Chorus

G              A               D          D/E   
          G
Superman never made any money, saving the world from Solomon Grundy,
    D           G           D                G       
   A
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man, like him.

Bridge

Bm  A       Bm          A          G        
D              A
Tar-zan was king of the jungle and lord over all the apes
Bm  A        Bm     A               G       
    G     D        A
But he could hardly string together four wo-rds: "I Tar-zan, you Jane"

Verse 3

G    D          G        D
Some-times when Supe was stopping crimes,
G    D               G               D               
 Bm           A
I'll bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back on man
Bm       A          Em       A
Join Tar-zan in the forest

G   D  G             D     G    D  
                G         D
But he stayed in the city, kept changing clothes in dirty old phonebooths
        Bm       A        Bm         A         
         A
Til his work was rued and nothing to do but go on

Chorus

G              A               D                     G
Superman never made any money, saving the world from Solomon Grundy,
    D           G           D                G       
   A
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man, like him.

Outro

    D           G           D                G       
   A
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man, like him.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. terrible... not accurate at all. at least try next time? capo on nine for a song that low? are you drunk?
