"BLACK HOLE SUN" Soundgarden

As heard on Superunknown (A&M)


Words and Music by Chris Cornell Transcribed by Steve Gorenberg and Jimmy Brown

In my eyes, ind isposed Black hole sun, won't you come Black hole sun, won't you come
In disgu ise as no one knows Won't you come, won't you come And wash away the rain
Hides the face, lies the snake Black hole sun, won 't you come
And the sun in my disgrace Stuttering , cold and damp Won't you come
Boiling heat, summer stench Steal t he warm wind, tired friend
'Neath the black the sky looks dead Times are gone for honest men and sometimes (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Call my name throug h t he cream and I'll Far too long for snakes Won't you come
Hear you scream again In my shoes, walking sleep
And my yout h I pray to keep Hang my head, drown my fear
Black hole sun, won't you come Heaven send hell away 'Til you all just disappear
And wash away the rain No one sings li ke you anymo re
