This is an acoustic version of David Bowie's dance/rock track from his album Earthling.  
a video of him playing it on Conan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n22ImOPXOnw

Tuned down one step.

[Intro]
| F | " | G | " | 4x
Alternate lifting the finger off of the low E string.  listen to the recording to get timing.

[Verse 1] (Basically repeat the intro but without lifting off from the low E):
He swivels his head
Tears his eyes from the screen
As his past puts him back in Atlantic City

There's not even a demon in Heaven or Hell
Is it all just human disguise?
As I walk down the aisle

[Chorus]
        F
And I'm gone gone gone
                    G
Now I'm older than movies
      F
And I know who's there
                 G
When silhouettes fall
        Bb
And I'm gone
                    Dm
Like I'm dancing on angels
        Cm                          Gm
And I'm gone through a crack in the past

Like a dead man walking (repeat intro through this part)
Like a dead man walking

[Verse]
Three old men dancing under the lamplight
Shaking their sex and their bones
And the boys that we were
An alien nation in therapy
Sliding naked and new
Like a bad tempered child
On a rain slicked street

| F | " | G | " | 4x

[Chorus]
        F
And I'm gone gone gone
                    G
Now I'm older than movies
      F
And I know who's there
                 G
When silhouettes fall
        Bb
And I'm gone
                    Dm
Like I'm dancing on angels
        Cm                          Gm
And I'm gone through a crack in the past

after this, he does a short instrumental section that i don't really know.
I think it's a chromatic walk up from F.

[Chorus]
        F
And I'm gone gone gone
                    G
Now I'm older than movies
      F
And I know who's there
                 G
When silhouettes fall
        Bb
And I'm gone
                    Dm
Like I'm dancing on angels
        Cm                          Gm
And I'm gone through a crack in the past

Made an improved version of this, which includes the bridge (with tabs) and fixes some mistakes on this tab: https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/d/david_bowie/dead_man_walking_acoustic_ver2_crd.htm
