Black Sabbath - Embryo/Children of the Grave/The Haunting

From Black Sabbath's "Master of Reality" Album - July 1976

Tuning Note: Tune to C#. Allegro, 132 beats/min., 4/4 count

Note:  Lyrics written here may not align with the tab due to space
       constraints.

Special Note:  I don't normally transcribe the chords so close together, 
               but the style of the song and the space constraint
               dictated it for "Children of the Grave".  Many thanks again
               to David Owen, of the UK!  iommifan@hotmail.com
