There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
David Bowie
5 Years
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust

I've seen a few tabs to this song and they all seem over-complicated.
I watched the OGWT version of the song where you can see everything Bowie plays.

G* - x55433 - I don't know what G this is called but Bowie uses it.
Em - 022000
A  - x02220
C/G- 332010
Am - a03320
D  - xx0232
G  - 320003

For the first bit of the song just do single up strums for each chords
G* Em A C/G

G*
Pushing Through the Market Square
Em
So many mothers sighing
A
News had just come over
C/G
We had 5 years left to cry in

...

and then...
                             Am      C/G
And all the fat-skinny people,
                             Am      C/G
and all the tall-short people
                             G*      C/G
And all the nobody people,
                             D
and all the somebody people

I never thought I'd need so many people C/G  G

Repeat the 4 chords now for the rest of the song with the strumming pattern
D DUDU X4 for each chord which starts with the normal G after "i never thought i'd need 
many people."

G*
A girl my age went off her head,
Em
hit some tiny children
A
If the black hadn't a-pulled her off,
C/G
I think she would have killed them

.....

G*
We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
Em
Five years, what a surprise
A
We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
C/G
Five years, that's all we've got

Your still going to need to listen for the timings, especially with the "All the tall 
people bit", but its a very easy song

If you really want to you can just use the strumming pattern throughout the whole song 
you are playing on your own.

anyway

Enjoy
