Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

London Boys  David Bowie

[F](A) bell strikes,[Dm] another night
Your [Eb]eyes are heavy and your [Cm]limbs all ache
[F]You've bought some coffee, [Dm]butter and bread
You [Eb]can't make a thing, 'cause the[Cm] meter's dead
You've [F]moved away    [Ab]
Told you're [F]folks you're gonna stay [Ab]away
[Eb]Bright lights, Soho, [Ab]Waldorff Street
You [F]hope you make friends with the [Eb]guys that you meet
[Bbm]Somebody shows you [Ab]'round.
[Db]Now you've met the [Ab]London Boys
[Db]Things seem good again
[B]Some[E]one [Gb]cares about [Fm]you  [F]
Oh the [F]first time that you [Dm]try a pill
You [Eb]feel a little queasy, dec[Cm]idedly ill
You're [F]gonna be sick, but you [Dm]mustn't lose face
To [Eb]let yourself down would be a [Cm]big disgrace
With the [F]London Boys   [Ab]
With the [F]London Boys   [Ab]
You're [Eb]only seventeen, but you [Ab]think you've grown
In the [F]month you've been away from you're [Eb]parent's home
You [Bbm]take the pills too [Ab]much
You [Db]don't give a damn about the [Ab]job you've got
So [Db]long as your with the [B]Lon[E]don [Gb]Boys  [Fm]     [F]
Ohh a [F]London Boy, oo a [Dm]London Boy
Your [Eb]flashy clothes are your [Cm]pride and joy
A [G]London Boy, yes a [Em]London Boy
You're [F]crying out loud that your a [D]London Boy
You [A]think you've had a [Gbm]lot of fun
But you [G]ain't got nothing your [Em]on the run
It's [E]too late now 'cause you're [Dbm]out there boy
You've [Gb]got it made with the [A]rest of the toys
[E]Now you wish you'd never [Dbm]left your home
You've [Gb]got what you wanted but you're [A]on your own
With the [Db]London [Gb]Boys   [B]
[Ab]Now you've met the [Db]London [Gb]Boys   [B]
[Ab]Now you've met the [Db]London [Gb]Boys   [B]
[Ab]Now you've met the [Db]London [Gb]Boys   [B]
