    Most tracks are here with chords rather than tab. :D

          -is addicted to the song- <.<

          ummm... would this help?

          Black Blade
          Find this song on Sheet music, CD

          ( - E. Bloom - M. Moorcock - J. Trivers - )

          I have this feeling that my luck is none too good
          This sword here at my side don't act the way it should
          Keeps calling me its master, but I feel like its slave
          Hauling me faster and faster to an early, early grave
          And it howls, it howls like hell

          I'm told it's my duty to fight against the law
          That wizardry's my trade and I was born to wade through gore
          I just want to be a lover, not a red-eyed screaming ghoul
          I wish it'd picked another to be its killing tool

          Black blade! Black blade!
          Forged a billion years ago
          Black blade! Black blade!
          Killing so its power can grow

          There's death from the beginning to the end of time
          And I'm the cosmic champion and I hold a mystic sign
          And the whole world's dying and the burdens mine
          And the black sword keeps on killing 'til the end of time

          Black blade! Black blade!
          Bringing chaos to the world we know
          Black blade! Black blade!
          And its using me to kill my friends
          Black blade! Black blade!
          Getting stronger so the world will end
          Black blade! Black blade!
          Forcing my mind to bend and bend

          The black blade
          Forged a million billion years ago
          My cosmic sword goes on for eternity
          Carving out destiny
          Bringing in the lords of chaos
          Bringing up the beasts of Hades
          Sucking out the souls of heroes
          Laying waste to knights and ladies
          My master is my slave

            What a great song, and one which, alas, BOC never plays on tour anymore. :(

            I had the privilege of seeing it performed twice, by Eric Bloom (and a backing band, not BOC), with MM appearing onstage at one of those gigs. I reallly wish someone had videotaped it. :o

              I wish I could go see a concert period even if it was BOC one....that'd be cool. MY uncle got a chance to see them when they were playing Black Blade. Lucky devil... :?
