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]

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

Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright.
