First Bowie tab... He is like my favourite male solo singer, so it's quite an event to me. The other tabs for
this song really sounded mostly wrong, so I decided to tab it properly. The only weird chord is E5, which
I play like this:

E5 022400

Hope you enjoy it, this song is a real underrated masterpiece.
Please rate and comment!


==Edit==
David Bowie passed away a few days ago after a tough battle against cancer. Words can't express how I
felt when I woke up and got to know about his death, and any attempt to describe how much he and his
music have helped me, to phrase what his works mean to me, would probably sound superficial, predictable
and dull. Only a few artists have been as determining, significant and important to me as he was, and I
thought he was sort of immortal. But he wasn't. 
Yet I like to think his music will live on and keep inspiring generations... As the poet says, only art
can make us eternal, and Bowie will always be my epitome of art.
This tab is my personal homage to Major Tom, the Man Who Sold The World, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane,
Halloween Jack, the Thin White Duke, the Man Who Fell To Earth, the Blackstar... to David Bowie.
Thanks for everything, you are my hero.

E5
Day after day 
E7                     E
They send my friends away 
    E7                 E
To mansions cold and grey 
        F
To the far side of town 
           Dm                   Em
Where the thin men stalk the streets 
           F               E5
While the sane stay underground 


E5
Day after day 
E7                  E
They tell me I can go 
      E7             E
They tell me I can blow 
        F
To the far side of town 
            Dm             Em
Where it's pointless to be high 
             F               E
'Cause it's such a long way down 


E
So I tell them that 
                            Dm            F
I can fly, I will scream, I will break my arm
Dm            E
I will do me harm 
                            Dm            F
Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall 
    Dm                 E
I'm not quite right at all, am I? 


F                          G
Don't set me free, I'm as heavy as can be
         F                    E
Just my librium and me and my EST makes three 



E           A                    E
'Cause I'd rather stay here with all the madmen 
     F#m              A               C#
Than perish with the sadmen roaming free 
         A                    E
And I'd rather play here with all the madmen 
         F#m                  A              Bm
For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me 



/ Bm / E / A /
/ F#m / Bm / G /


(Where can the horizon lie 
When a nation hides 
Its organic minds in a cellar, dark and grim,
They must be very dim)


E5
Day after day 
     E7                E
They take some brain away 
      E7             E
Then turn my face around 
        F
To the far side of town 
    Dm                 E
And tell me that it's real 
     F             E
Then ask me how I feel 


/ E / E / E/D / F /
/ Dm / E / E /


E                           E/D           F
Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall 
    Dm                 E
I'm not quite right at all 

F                          G
Don't set me free, I'm as helpless as can be
      F                              E
My libido's split on me, gimme some good 'ole lobotomy 


E           A                    E
'Cause I'd rather stay here with all the madmen 
     F#m              A               C#
Than perish with the sadmen roaming free 
         A                    E
And I'd rather play here with all the madmen 
         F#m                  A              Bm
For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me 


/ Bm / Bm / E / E /

A                 F#m
Zane, zane, zane, ouvre le chien
Bm               G
Zane, zane, zane ouvre le chien
