Panic In Detroit  David Bowie

        [B5]    [G5]    [A5]    [B5]    [G5]    [A5]         

He [D]looked a lot like Che Guevara [E]drove a diesel van
[D]Kept his gun in quiet seclusion [E]such a humble man
[G]The only sur[A]vivor [G]of the National [A]People's Gang
[D]Panic in [C]Detroit [D]I asked for an [C]autograph
[D]He wanted to [G]stay home I [A]wish someone would phone
Panic in [D]Detroit [E]   [D]   [E]

He [D]laughed at accidental sirens [E]that broke the evening gloom
The [D]police had warned of repercussions [E]they followed none too soon
[G]A trickle of [A]strangers [G]were all that were [A]left alive
[D]Panic in [C]Detroit [D]I asked for an [C]autograph
[D]He wanted to [G]stay home I [A]wish someone would phone
Panic in [D]Detroit [E]   [D]   [E]
[D]Putting on some clothes I made my [C]way to school, ooh ooh
And I [Bm]found my teacher [C]crouching in his [G]overalls
I [D]screamed and ran to smash my favourite [C]slot machine, ooh ooh
Bm C D G D G...with solo tab
And jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights


INTRO


[D]Having scored a trillion dollars [E]made a run back home
[D]Found him slumped across the table [E]a gun and me alone
[G]I ran to the [A]window [G]looked for a [A]plane or two
[D]Panic in [C]Detroit [D]he'd left me an [C]autograph
[D]Let me col[G]lect dust I [A]wish someone would phone
Panic in [D]Detroit [E]
Panic in [D]Detroit [E]
Panic in [B5]Detr[G5]oit [A5]    [B5]    [G5]    [A5]
