Children of the Sea

Hey Guys it's my first Tab so if you have the time, please give me a feedback or a correction :)
This song is a great, epic, and beautiful song I think. Ronnie James Dio wrote it in 1979 when he
became singer of Black Sabbath

I hope you enjoy to Play real music and not this modern macbook-dupstep-crap ;)

Greetings from Switzerland

Dm Intro 2x

Dm INTRO           (Dsus4)            (Dsus4)                   (Dsus4)        (Dsus4)
In the misty morning, on the edge of time. We've lost the rising sun, a final sign
                (Dsus4)             (Dsus4)                                    Dmaj
As the misty morning rolls away to die. Reaching for the stars, we blind the sky

A*                 H*/C* H*/C* A*                   G*  D* 2x

A*                 H*/C* H*/C* A*                   G*  D*
We sailed across the air       before we learned to fly.
A*                 H*/C* H*/C*  A*   G* D*
We thought that it could never end
A*                 H*/C* H*/C* A*                 G*   D*
We'd glide above the ground before we learned to run, run. 
A*                 H*/C* H*/C*     A*   G* D*
Now it seems our world has come undone

C*       G*             A*  H*/C* H*/C*         G*         A*  H*/C* H*/C*
Oh they say that it's over,             And it just had to be
C*        G*             A*  H*/C* H*/C*           G*             C* H* D*     A*  H*/C* H*/C*   A* G* D*
Ooh they say that it's over,            We're lost children of the sea, oh

A*                   H*/C* H*/C*      A*         G*  D*
We made the mountains shake with laughter as we played. 
A*              H*/C* H*/C*   A*    G* D*
Hiding in our corner of the world
A*                H*/C* H*/C*     A*          G* D*
Then we did the demon dance and rushed to nevermore. 
A*             H*/C* H*/C*         A*    G* D*
Threw away the key and locked the door

C*       G*             A*  H*/C* H*/C* C*      G*         A*  H*/C* H*/C*
Oh they say that it's over,     Yeah.   And it just had to be
C*         G*             A*  H*/C* H*/C*   C*  G*             C* H*  D* 
Yes, they say that it's over,         We're lost children of the sea, oh

Solo

Dm Intro 2x

Dm INTRO           (Dsus4)            (Dsus4)                   (Dsus4)        (Dsus4)
In the misty morning, on the edge of time. We've lost the rising sun, a final sign
                (Dsus4)             (Dsus4)                                    Dmaj
As the misty morning rolls away to die. Reaching for the stars, we blind the sky

C*       G*             A*  H*/C* H*/C*         G*         A*  H*/C* H*/C*
Oh they say that it's over,             And it just had to be
C*        G*             A*  H*/C* H*/C*           G*             C* H* D*      A*  H*/C* H*/C*   A* G* D* 
Ooh they say that it's over,            Poor lost children of the sea, oh

A*         H*/C* H*/C*     C*                 G* D* A*
LOOK OUT!                  The sky is falling down!
A*         H*/C* H*/C*     C*                      G*        D*       A*
LOOK OUT!                  The world is spinning round and round and round!
A*         H*/C* H*/C*     C*                 G*    D*   A*
LOOK OUT!                  The sun is going black, black
A*         H*/C* H*/C*     C*                G*    D*     A*
LOOK OUT!                  It's never never never coming back, LOOK OUT!
