Children Of The Grave

Written by Iommi/Ward/Butler/Osbourne
                Warner Bros. Records  2562-2

        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#
