Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Five Years  David Bowie

[G] pushing thru' the market square[F#m]
[Em] so [C]many mother sighing
[A] News had just come over
We had [C]five years left ti cry in[G] [Am]
News guy wept and told us
earth eas really dying
Cried so much, his face was wet
Then i knew he was not lying.
[G]I [Am]heard [G]telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
I [Bm]saw [Em]boys, toys, electric irons and T.V's
My [A]brain hurt like a ware house, it had no room to spare
I had to c[C]ram so many things to store ev'ry thing in there
And all the fat [Am]skinny people
[C] And all the tall short [Am]people
[C] And all the no[G]bod[Am]y  [G]people
[C] And all the some[G]bod[Am]y  [D7]people
I never thought i'd need so many [Am]people[C] [G] [Am]
A girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
If the black had not puled her off
I think she would have killed them
A soldier with a broken arm
Fixed his state to the wheels of a Cadilac
A cop Knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
And a queer threw up at at the sight of that
[G] I think i saw you in an ice cream parlour[F#m]
[Em] Drinking milkshakes cold and long
[A] smiling and waving and looking so fine
[C] Don't think you knew you were in this song
And [G]it [Am]was [G]cold, and it rained, so i felt like an actor
[F#m]And i [Em]thoought of Ma, and i wanted to get back there
Your [A]face, Your race, the way that you talk
I [C]kiss you, you're beautifull, I want you to walk. [G]we [Am]got
((:  [G]five years stuck on my eyes[Bm]
      [Em]five years what a surprise we got
      [A]five years my brain hurts a lot
      [C]five years that's all we got we've got  :))
