Life On Mars? - David Bowie

[Verse]

F      F/E                   Cm/Eb
It's a god-awful small affair
       D                        Gm
To the girl with the mousy hair
        Gm/F             C7/E
But her mummy is yelling "No"
        C7                     F
And her daddy has told her to go
        F/E                     Cm/Eb
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
        D                         Gm
Now she walks through her sunken dream
        Gm/F                      C7
To the seat with the clearest view 
          C7                             Ab
And she's hooked to the silver screen


[Pre-Chorus]

        C7+/E               Fm
But the film is a saddening bore
          Ab                    Db
For she's lived it ten times or more
          Aaug                   Bbm
She could spit in the eyes of fools
        Db7
As they ask her to focus on


[Chorus]

Bb      Eb              
Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Gm7
  Oh man!
F#aug                   F
Look at those cavemen go
Fm                      Cm7
   It's the freakiest show
Ebm7                  Bb 
   Take a look at the Lawman
Eb           
Beating up the wrong guy
Gm7        F#aug                  F
   Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
Fm                          Cm7
   He's in the best selling show
Ebm7                Gm     F#aug    Bb/F   C7/E
   Is there life on Ma - - - - - - - - - -rs?


[middle 8]

F  F#dim  Gm  Ddim  Am  Bb  Bbm


[Verse]

F          F/E                  Cm/Eb
   It's on Amerika's tortured brow
            D                    Gm
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
        Gm/F                    C7/E
Now the workers have struck for fame
       C7                      F
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
        F/E                   Cm/Eb
See the mice in their million hordes
     D                      Gm
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
     Gm/F                    C7/E
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
      C7                           Ab
To my mother, my dog, and clowns


[Pre-Chorus]

        C7+/E               Fm
But the film is a saddening bore
          Ab                   Db
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
     Aaug               Bbm
It's about to be writ again
     Db          
As I ask you to focus on


[Chorus]

Bb      Eb              
Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Gm7
  Oh man!
F#aug                   F
Look at those cavemen go
Fm                      Cm7
   It's the freakiest show
Ebm7                  Bb 
   Take a look at the Lawman
Eb           
Beating up the wrong guy
Gm7        F#aug                  F
   Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
Fm                          Cm7
   He's in the best selling show
Ebm7                Gm     F#aug    Bb/F   C7/E
   Is there life on Ma - - - - - - - - - -rs?


[Ending]

Hej Ilskan bra jobbat...
Några förslag. Isf F/E så prova Am/Em och isf Gm/F , ta Bb/F
i pre chorus ta Ab som Ab/F# istället (2,x,1,1,1,x)

Men som sagt det är en smaksak,.
