Starman David Bowie Guitar Chords    

Starman 		David Bowie

C   G            C   G
    Hey now now

verse 1
Didn't know what time it was, lights were low oh oh
I leaned back on my radio oh oh
D                             D7                             G    A C A 
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll, lotta' soul, he said.
Then the loud sound did seem to fade.
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase.
D                             D7                 B(single note repeat)
That weren't no DJ.  That was hazy cosmic jive.  B           A  (chords under)

          G      Em
Ther's a starman waiting in the sky
Bm                    Bm/A bass
He'd like to come and meet us, 
but he thinks he'd blow our minds.
          G        Em          
There's a starman, waiting in the sky.
Bm                    Bm/A bass
He's told us not to blow it 
Cause he knows it's all worthwhile.

He told me:
Let the children lose it.
G	      Em
Let the children use it.
C          D
Let all the children boogie.


G  A  B  C  C  B  A  G

G  A  C  D  D  C  A  G

riff (goes over chords above)

G -2-3-5-7-7-5-3-2--2-3-5-9-9-7-5-2

verse 2
I had to phone someone, so I picked on you.
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too.
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two.
Look out your window I can see his light.
If we can sparkle he may land tonight.
Don't tell your poppa' or he'll get us locked up in fright.

chorus (twice)

go out on bridge
