Verse 1:
G                     C         D               G
I was in Pittsburgh when I saw Superman in the backroom
        C              D                G
He was doing lines or something in the bathroom
  C           D             G    C  D
I barely recognized him at all
G                C                   D                 G
I saw him doing things you shouldn't do with all that power
   C                        D                  G
I wish someone would have thrown him in the shower
  C            D            G    C    D
I barely recognized him at all
 
Chorus:
G                   C          D
That night I put my youth in a casket
G                C       D
And buried it inside of me
G                  C              D
That night I saw through all the magic
G                         C         D
Now I'm a witness to the death of a hero
G                  C              D
I burned all the pictures in the attic
G                   C        D
And threw away the magazines
G                  C              D
That night I saw through all the magic
    G                         C          D
And now I'm a witness to the death of a hero

I tried to look away but you can't look away from a trainwreck
     C                  D                      G
The things you said to girls, well they were shameless
  C           D            G    C    D
I barely recognized him at all
G                   C               D                 G
I tried to help but he said he was just too far from saving
     C               D             G
And nothing I could say was gonna change him
   C          D            G    C  D
I barely recognized him at all

The death of a hero he couldn't be saved

Now I'm cutting the grass and I'll cover his grave
