Starman  David Bowie

[Bb#11]       [Fmaj7]                              
Hey now now Do do da
[Bb#11]                [Fmaj7]                     

Verse 1:

[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]
Then the loud sound did seem to fa-a-a-de
Came back like slow voice on a wave of pha-a-a-se
That weren't no DJ that was hazy cosmic jive [A] [Gsus2] [Pick A tbrougbout (i.e. e|-5-]

Chorus:

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

Verse 2:

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