G                    Bm                             C  
Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Wierd and Gilly,
       (trans)               D
(and) the Spiders from Mars.
                    G                    Em  
He played it left hand, but made it too far,

           A       A7                C
became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band.
G                  Bm                                   C  
Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo,

      (trans)             D
like some cat from Japan.

                           G                         Em   
He could lick 'em by smiling, he could leave 'em to hang;

                  A       A7                 C
(they) came on so loaded, man. Well-hung and snow-white tan.

A              G               F             G
            So where were the Spiders?

A              G               F             G
     While the fly tried to break our balls.
A              G               F             G 
      Just the beer light to guide us.       So we

D                                    E
bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands...

(Intro x 2)

G                      Bm                        C    
Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo,

(trans)                 D
the kids was just crass,

           G                    Em
He was the nazz, with God given ass, 

           A       A7                    C
He took it all too far, but boy could he play guitar.

A              G              F             G
        Making love with his ego,
A              G           F                G
         Ziggy sucked up into his mind,

A              G        F                   G
        like a leper messiah,          when the

D                                E
kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.

(Intro x 3) then:

				    Ziggy played .....   guitar.

(In acoustic version, after the second chorus Bowie immediately repeats
the second chorus, then he plays the intro several times and fades out,
without singing "Ziggy played guitar").
