Standard Tuning:

I have Decided To Make A Proper Tab Of Starman By David Bowie
Since No Other Tabs Avaliable Have The Lead Sections. This
Tab Includes Easy-To-Play Chords And The Lead Guitar/Piano Parts
And The Name Of The Chords For Later Reference. I Also have Lead
Guitar Parts For Other Bowie Songs So If You Want Any, Feel Free
To Email Me With Requests.

[LYRICS]

[Bb]  [f]  [Bb]  hey la la la... [f] hey la la la...

[Gm] Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low-ow- [F] ow
I leaned back on my radio-o- [C] o
Some cat was layin'down some [C7] rock'n'roll'lotta soul, he [F] said [Ab] [Bb2]
[Gm] Then the loud sound did seem to fa-a-a- [F] de
Came back like slow voice on a wave of pha-a-a- [C] se
That weren't no DJ that was [C7] hazy cosmic jive  [A]   [G]

[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky 
He'd [Am] like to come and [C] meet us
But he [C7] thinks he'd blow our minds
[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky
He's [Am] told us not to  [C] blow it
Cause he [C7] knows it's all worthwhile                      
He told me:
[Bb] Let the children [Bbm] lose it
[f]  Let the children [Dm7] use it
[Gm] Let the children [F]   boogle

MEDLEY:
[Bb]  [f]   [C]  [f]  [Bb]  [f]  [C]  [f] 

[Gm] I had to phone someone so I picked on you-ou- [F] ou
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too-oo- [C] oo
Switch on the TV we may [C7] pick him up on channel [F] two [Ab] [Bb2]
[Gm] Look out your window I can see the light-ight- [F] ight
If we can sparkle he may land tonight-ight- [C] ight
Don't tell your papa or he'll [C7] get us locked up in fright [A] [G]

[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky 
He'd [Am] like to come and [C] meet us
But he [C7] thinks he'd blow our minds
[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky
He's [Am] told us not to  [C] blow it
Cause he [C7] knows it's all worthwhile
He told me:
[Bb] Let the children [Bbm] lose it
[f]  Let the children [Dm7] use it
[Gm] Let the children [F]   boogle

[C7] There's a [F] starman [Dm] waiting in the sky 
He'd [Am] like to come and [C] meet us
But he [C7] thinks he'd blow our minds
