Song: Changes (David Bowie)
Album: Hunky Dory


[Intro]
[4/4]

Cmaj7     Db6     Dm7     Eb7     F7     D     F7     D     F7
                             Oh yeah


[Verse]

C                         Em7
  Still don't know what I was waiting for
       F
And my time was running wild
G           F
  A million dead-end streets and
C                         Em7
  Every time I thought I'd got it made
              F                   G
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
     Cmaj7    Dm7        Em7   Emb7
So I turned myself to face me
    Dm7                       G
But I've never caught a glimpse
           Cmaj7       Dm7       Em7   Emb7
Of how the others must see the faker
              Dm7
I'm much too fast to take that test


[Chorus]

G          F
  Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
C        C/B
Turn and face the strange
C/A        C/G
  Ch-ch-Changes
F       F/E                [2/4] D    [4/4]
  Don't want to be a richer      man
G          F
  Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
C        C/B
Turn and face the strange
C/A        C/G
  Ch-ch-Changes
F      F/E               [2/4] D               
  It's gonna have to be a      different man
[3/4]  F/A  C/G   Bb    F
       Time may change me
   C/E G/D  F/A   C      [4/4]
But I can't trace time


[Verse]

C                         Em7
I watch the ripples change their size
       F
But never leave the stream of warm impermanence
C                         Em7
And so the days float through my eyes
              F                   G
But still the days seem the same
     Cmaj7    Dm7        Em7   Emb7
And these children that you spit on
    Dm7                       G
As they try to change their worlds
           Cmaj7       Dm7       Em7   Emb7
Are immune to your consultations
              Dm7
They're quite aware of what they're going through


[Chorus]

G          F
  Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
C        C/B
Turn and face the strange
C/A        C/G
  Ch-ch-Changes
F       F/E                [2/4] D    [4/4]
  Don't want to be a richer      man
G          F
  Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
C        C/B
Turn and face the strange
C/A        C/G
  Ch-ch-Changes
F      F/E               [2/4] D               
  It's gonna have to be a      different man
[3/4]  F/A  C/G   Bb    F
       Time may change me
    C/E G/D   F/A   C    Dm  Em
But you can't trace time


[Bridge]

F                        C            F/C  C
Strange fascination, fascinating me
F                      G
Changes are taking the pace I'm going through


[Chorus]

G          F
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
C        C/B
Turn and face the strange
C/A        C/G
Ch-ch-Changes
F       F/E                [2/4] D    [4/4]
Look out you rock'n'rollers
G          F
Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
C        C/B
Turn and face the strange
C/A        C/G
Ch-ch-Changes
F      F/E               [2/4] D               
Pretty soon now you're gonna get older
[3/4]  F/A  C/G   Bb    F
Time may change me
    C/E G/D   F/A   C    Dm  Em
But I can't trace time


[Ending]

            F/A  C/G Bb     F
I said that time may change me
   C/E  G/D  F/A  C
But I can't trace time

Dm7     Em7     Eb7     Dm7     Dbmaj7      Cmaj7

This isn't the simplest, but it's the most accurate. Thanks so much for this.

The chord changes in the chorus are so fun to play through

Instead of F/A, C/G, Bb, F, C/E G/D, F/A, C, Play Fmaj7,C Bb F, C, G/D Fmaj7, C. It doesn't sound much different, and it's way easier to play.
