(with Above Riff):

           E7#9
Very super-stitious, writing's on the wall.
Very superstitious, ladders bout' to fall.
Thirteen month old baby, broke the lookin' glass.
Seven years of bad luck; the good things in your past.


[Chorus]

            B7       C7#11
When you be-lieve in things,
         B7          Bb13#11         A7
That you don't under-stand, then you suffer.
Baug                   (E7#9)
 Superstition ain't the way.

[Verse 2]
(with Verse Riff)

           E7#9
Very super-stitious, wash your face and hands.
Rid me of the problem, do all that you can.
Keep me in a daydream, keep me goin' strong.
You don't wanna save me, sad is my song.


[Chorus 2]

            B7       C7#11
When you be-lieve in things,
         B7          Bb13#11         A7

           Em7
Very super-stitious, nothin' more to say.

Seven years of bad luck; the good things in your past.

Never could play this on guitar but on ukulele it sounds great if you play it in Dm. Can do fingerplay for the base but it is more tenor.
