Starman - David Bowie

[Intro]

C       G      C      G
        Hey now now


[Verse 1]

Am
Didn't know what time it was, lights were low oh oh
G
I leaned back on my radio oh oh
D                               D7                             G      A# C  
Some cat was layin' down some   rock 'n' roll, lotta' soul, he  said.
Am
Then the loud sound did seem to fade.
G
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase.
D                               D7                     B      A
That weren't no DJ. That was    hazy cosmic jive.


[Chorus]

                G       Em
There’s a       starman waiting in the sky
        Bm                      Bm/A
He'd    like to come and        meet us, 
        D
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
                G               Em
There's a       starman,        waiting in the sky.
        Bm              Bm/A
He's    told us not to blow it 
                D
Cause he        knows it's all worthwhile.
                C
He told me      let the children lose it.
G                Em
Let the children use it.
C               D
Let all the     children boogie.


[Bridge]

C       G      D      G      C      G      D


[Verse 2]

Am                                                      
I had to phone someone, so I picked on you.
G                                               
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too.
D                       D7                             G      A# C 
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on Channel Two.
C
Look out your window I can see his light.
G
If we can sparkle he may land tonight.
D                               D7                             B      A
Don't tell your poppa or he'll  get us locked up in fright.


[Chorus]

                G       Em
There’s a       starman waiting in the sky
        Bm                      Bm/A
He'd    like to come and        meet us, 
        D
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
                G       Em
There's a       starman waiting in the sky.
        Bm              Bm/A
He's    told us not to blow it 
                D
Cause he        knows it's all worthwhile.
                C
He told me      let the children lose it.
G       Em
Let the children use it.
C               D
Let all the     children boogie
                G       Em
There’s a       starman waiting in the sky
        Bm                      Bm/A
He'd    like to come and        meet us, 
        D
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
                G               Em
There's a       starman,        waiting in the sky.
        Bm              Bm/A
He's    told us not to blow it 
                D
Cause he        knows it's all worthwhile.
                C
He told me      let the children lose it.
G               Em
Let the children use it.
C               D
Let all the     children boogie.

Ouch..ever get the feeling someone with a big head tries to punch the wind out of someone trying his best? Guess I must bow to the master race & their puritans.
