God Knows Im Good

David Bowie

 GCadd9GF/CC

VERSE 1:

 AmAm7/GBm7A7
I was walking through the counters of a national concern
 F/CCGCadd9
And a cash machine was spitting by my shoulder  
 AmAm7/GBm7A7
And I saw the multitude of faces, honest, rich and clean
 F/CCGCadd9
As the merchandise exchanged and money roared    

 CGAmAm7/G
And a woman hot with worry slyly slipped a tin of stewing steak
 D/F#CGCadd9
 Into the paper bag at her side   
 CGAm
And her face was white with fear in case her actions
 Am7/G
Were observed
 D/F#CGCadd9
So she closed her eyes to keep her conscience blind   

CHORUS:

 AmAm7/G
Crying God knows I'm good
 D7/F#F
 God knows I'm good
 FE
 God knows I'm good
 AmC/GE
 God may look the other way today

 AmAm7/G
 God knows I'm good
 D7/F#F
 God knows I'm good
 FE
 God knows I'm good
 AmC/GE
 God may look the other way today

VERSE 2:

 AmAm7/GBm7A7
Then she moved toward the exit clutching tightly at her paper bag
 F/CCGCadd9
 Perspiration trickled down her forehead  
 AmAm7/GBm7A7
And her heart it leapt inside her as the hand laid on her shoulder
 F/CCGCadd9
She was led away bewildered and amazed     

 CGAmAm7/G
Through her deafened ears the cash machines were shrieking on the counter
 D/F#CG
As her escort asked her softly for her name
 CGAmAm7/G
And a crowd of honest people rushed to help a tired old lady
 D/F#CG
Who had fainted to the whirling wooden floor

CHORUS:

 AmAm7/G
Crying God knows I'm good
 D7/F#F
 God knows I'm good
 FE
 God knows I'm good
 AmC/GE
 Surely God won't look the other way

 AmAm7/G
 God knows I'm good
 D7/F#F
 God knows I'm good
 FE
 God knows I'm good
 AmC/GE
 Surely God won't look the other way
