The Mott the Hoople version from 1972 was recorded in D major. Bowie's 
studio version from 1973 (now available on RarestOneBowie) is in between C 
and B major (I think), probably because of the playback speed. I'm not sure 
about available live recordings by either artists. The lyrics between the 
two studio versions vary slightly - Bowie's lyrics are used here; however, I 
chose to write the music in D major rather than get involved with the C 
major/B major deal.

In D major:

        The first four measures of the verse contain an ascending D major 
scale down to A. The beginning of each measure gets one note. 


[Verse]

Billy rapped all night about his suicide, how he
Bm                                              Bm7
kick it in the head when he was twenty-five.
F#m                                                A
Don't wanna stay alive when your twenty five.

 D                                               Dmaj7
Wendy's stealing clothes from unlocked cars and
Bm                                              Bm7
Freddy's got spots from ripping off stars
F#m                                                A
from his face - a funky little boat race.

Swap the Dmaj7 for D/C# and the Bmin7 for Bmin/A

The chorus is... D, D/C#, Bmin, Bmin/A, Amin, G, F, C, then that little bit that gets back to the D, which is G, C, A and back to the D to start again. Try it, it's simple.
