             FIVE YEARS  / David Bowie

G                                 F#m
 pushing thru' the market square
Em  C
 so many mother sighing
 News had just come over
        C                         G Am
 We had five years left ti cry in

 News guy wept and told us
 earth eas really dying
 Cried so much, his face was wet
 Then i knew he was not lying.

 G Am    G
 I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
   Bm  Em
 I saw boys, toys, electric irons and T.V's
 My brain hurt like a ware house, it had no room to spare
 I had to cram so many things to store ev'ry thing in there
 And all the fat skinny people
C                       Am
 And all the tall short people
C              G  Am G
 And all the nobody  people
C                G  Am D7
 And all the somebody  people
                                  Am       C    G Am
 I never thought i'd need so many people

 A girl my age went off her head
 Hit some tiny children
 If the black had not puled her off
 I think she would have killed them

 A soldier with a broken arm
 Fixed his state to the wheels of a Cadilac
 A cop Knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
 And a queer threw up at at the sight of that

G                                         F#m
 I think i saw you in an ice cream parlour
 Drinking milkshakes cold and long
 smiling and waving and looking so fine
 Don't think you knew you were in this song

     G  Am  G
 And it was cold, and it rained, so i felt like an actor
 F#m   Em
 And i thoought of Ma, and i wanted to get back there
 Your face, Your race, the way that you talk
   C                                                G  Am
 I kiss you, you're beautifull, I want you to walk. we got

      G                          Bm
 [[:  five years stuck on my eyes
      five years what a surprise we got
      five years my brain hurts a lot
      five years that's all we got we've got  :]]

Pretty good. I think there's a little too many chords in some place for a guitar part, but it sounds right otherwise.

Awesome job there mate. belavista_man is correct perhaps too many chords just for te guitar part, I believe you also added the bass (arranged for guitar). Keep them coming buddy! 5/5

the extra chords are meant to be runs i think.like from the g you do a bassline run into em.on the top e string pluck 3rdfret,second fret and then play the em quickly/sounds nice.
