-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 OH! YOU PRETTY THINGS - David Bowie
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rvaen
Email: andy@lazysranch.org

Tuning: standard
capo: 1st fret.

All chords (but not tabs) are relative to the capo. There are two sets of changes: the 
and the chorus. This is a guitar transcription of the piano chords. The piano breaks were 
lot of work, due to the unique voicings used. Some parts I'm sure on, others...not so
much. Feel free to email a correction if you got one.

The only tricky chord:
        E A D G B e
FM7/E: [0 x 3 2 1 0]

F              C
   Wake up you sleepy head
G                          Dm
Put on some clothes, shake up your bed
F                      C
Put another log on the fire for me
G                           D
Ive made some breakfast and coffee
F                  C
Look out my window what do I see
   A7                    Dm                    Bb
A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me
        B                 C
All the nightmares came today
                               F
And it looks as though theyre here to stay

F             C
  What are we coming to
G                  Dm
No room for me, no fun for you
F                C
 I think about a world to come
          G                       D
Where the books were found by the golden ones
F                C
Written in pain, written in awe
A7                   Dm
By a puzzled man who questioned
                  Bb
What we were here for
        B              C
All the strangers came today
                              F
And it looks as though theyre here to stay

Chorus:
F      FM7/E
Oh you pretty things (oh you pretty things)
Dm          C
   Dont you know youre driving your
Bb                 F
Mamas and papas insane
x2
       G
Let me make it plain
C                          Bb            F
You gotta make way for the homo superior

Verse:
Look at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Dont kid yourself they belong to you
Theyre the start of a coming race
The earth is a bitch
Weve finished our news
Homo sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though theyre here to stay
