Subject: LADY STARDUST by David Bowie


Lady Stardust (original album version)
        (words & music by David Bowie)


Intro:  A   E

A      C#            F#m           D
People stared at the makeup on his face
A              F#m            E            C#
Laughed at his long black hair, his animal grace
F#m            D
The boy in the bright blue jeans
A                C#
Jumped up on the stage
    A             E
And lady stardust sang his songs
   D               E
Of darkness and disgrace

           A E          D            E
And he was alright, the band was altogether
           A E          D                E
Yes he was alright, the songs went on forever
          Em     Em(#7)
And he was awful nice
Em7                 Em6
Really quite out of sight
            A   E     D    E
And he sang all night long


The femme fatales emerged from shadows
To watch this creature fair
Boys stood upon their chairs to make thier point of view
I smiled sadly for a love I could not obey
And Lady Stardust sang his songs
Of darkness and dismay

And he was alright, the band was altogether
Yes he was alright, the songs went on forever
And he was awful nice
Really quite paradise
And he sang all night long

D          D#dim            E
Ooh, how I sighed when they asked if I knew his name


Oh they were alright, the band was altogether
Yes he was alright, and the song went on forever
He was up all night
Really quite out of sight
He sang all night long

At the intro and at the outtro sounds better if you play this:

After a puzzling discussion with a musicien friend trying to play those chords on the piano, I've realized I play a D#dim7 in the break part ("ooh How I sighed..") instead of a D#dim.
Doesn't change much in the ear but maybe more precise.

I want to post or [tab]
