Sweet Leaf
Black Sabbath Lyrics

Alright now
Won't you listen?

When I first met you, didn't realize
I can't forget you, for your surprise
You introduced me, to my mind
And left me wanting, you and your kind, oh yeah

I love you, oh you know it
My life was empty, forever on a down
Until you took me, showed me around
My life is free now, my life is clear
I love you sweet leaf, though you can't hear, oh yeah

Come on now, try it out

Straight people don't know, what you're about
They put you down and shut you out
You gave to me a new belief
And soon the world will love you sweet leaf, oh yeah baby

Come on now, oh yeah
Try me out baby, alright, oh yeah
I want you part of this sweet leaf, oh yeah
Alright, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh try me out
I love you sweet leaf, oh

Written by: Michael Butler, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, William Ward

Caleb Bliss

One of Sabbath's heavest and grooviest songs. Long live heavy metal \m/

Dick Dastardly

Stoner rock avant la lettre.

Paco Bird

Ozzy sounds like he was near the end of the tour and took one toke too many before this performance. I love how the guitar solo just takes off like our of nowhere. Iommi a true wizard.


My fav sabbath song, so sad its not gotta lot of airplay. So Heavy when loud.

Joseph Williams

Yeah really I agree I think i've only heard Sweet Leaf being played on the radio on 106.1 Wrdu from where im from down here in N.C. like 3 times thru a 20 year period " they always playing the main - hits like Iron man , Paranoid etc...bc what about other great - guitar riffs by the Master Tony like " Sweet Leaf , Symptom of the universe, Psycho man , In the End , Sabbath Bloody Sabbath & more....

Scott Sargent

Henry Yates

Man, hearing his voice crack like that really makes me sad

Dave Anthony

That’s what happens with age and partying. Maybe you’re life is sad if that’s what gets you down.

Henry Yates

Real weak
