“Heroes” – David Bowie
From the Album “Heroes” – 1977 (Bowie/Eno)

This is the Album version. There are more verses and they are in a different order than the single version.
All the other versions on this site are the single version.

For a nice touch add this simple riff between G and D chords

[Intro]
D  G   D  G

[Verse 1]
D            G
I, I will be king
    D                G
And you, you will be queen
       C                       D
Though nothing will drive them away
       Am7       Em              D 
We can beat them    just for one day
          C      G              D
We can be Heroes   just for one day


[Verse 2]
D                   G
And you, you can be mean
    D             G
And I, I’ll drink all the time
             D                    G
‘Cause we’re lovers and that is a fact
          D                       G
Yes we’re lovers and that is that
       C                       D
Though nothing will keep us together
               Am7  Em              D 
We could steal time    just for one day
          C      G              D
We can be Heroes   for ever and ever

What d’you say?


D  G  D  G


[Verse 3]
D                   G
I, I wish you could swim
         D                           G
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
       C                             D
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
       Am7       Em              D 
We can beat them    for ever and ever
             C      G              D
Oh we can be Heroes   just for one day


D  G  D  G
 

[Verse 3]
D            G
I, I will be king
    D                G
And you, you will be queen
       C                       D
Though nothing will drive them away
          Am7    Em              D 
We can be Heroes    just for one day
          C   G              D
We can be us    just for one day


[Verse 4]
D          G
I, I can remember (I remember)
D                G
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
    D                    G
The guns, shot above our heads (over our heads)
       D                              G
And we kissed as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
        C                      D
And the shame was on the other side
          Am7       Em              D 
Oh we can beat them    for ever and ever
               C      G              D
Then we can be Heroes   just for one day


[Outro]
D             G     
    We can be Heroes
D             G     
    We can be Heroes
D             G                     D
    We can be Heroes, just for one day
              G
    We can be Heroes
       C                       D
We’re nothing and nothing will help us
            Am7   Em                     D 
Maybe we’re lying    then you better not stay
                C     G              D
But we could be safer   just for one day

Oh Oh Ohhh Ohhh 

(fade)
