		The Jean Genie by David Bowie
				-----------
		Tabbed by Frederic Maquet (f.maquet@ic.ac.uk)


This is an extremely fun song to play.  It's quite easy to make it sound
quite like
the original.  The tab is 90% correct, as I taped this off the radio.
Therefore, I'm not quite
sure about the intro (although, it should be that, if I remember
correctly),
and I think in the extended version there might be a longer solo
(probably based
on E blues),but then again, there might not be one...Enjoy!

Don't forget to drop me a line:

Small Jean Genie, she took off to the city,
E   E   E           A      E    E      E    A
Strung out on lasers and slash-back blazers
Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
Talking 'bout Monroe while walking on snow white
New York's a go-go, and everything tastes nice,
Poor little greenie...
Oowwooohoo

	Gene Genie,   lives.....back

B riff
Jean Genie, lives on his back,
Jean Genie, loves chimney stacks
"It's outrageous", he screams and he bawls,
Jean Genie, let yourself go!

A riff x2
Ohooo
Verse 2:
--------
Sits like a man but he smiles like a reptile,
She love him, she love him, but just for a short while,
She's scratching the sand, won't let go of his hand,
He says he's a beautician, he sells you nutrition,
Keeps all your dead hair for making up underwear
Poor little greenie,  ooo oohooo

Chorus 2:  Same as chorus 1
---------

Verse 3:
--------
He's so simple minded, he can't drive his module,
He bites on the neon and sleeps in a capsule

Solo-ish
   EEEEEEEEEE  E   E7      E  E  E    A    EEEEEEEEEEEE  E  E7
