Dead Man Walking Acoustic   David Bowie



This is an acoustic version of David Bowie's dance/rock track from his album Earthling.  
a video of him playing it on Conan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n22ImOPXOnw

Tuned down one step.

Intro:
|F|"|G|"| 4X
Alternate lifting the finger off of the low E string.  listen to the recording to get 
timing.

Verse (Basically repeat the intro but without lifting off from the low E):
He swivels his head
Tears his eyes from the screen
As his past puts him back in Atlantic City

There's not even a demon in Heaven or Hell
Is it all just human disguise?
As I walk down the aisle

Chorus:
        F
And I'm gone gone gone
                    G
Now I'm older than movies
      F
And I know who's there
                 G
When silhouettes fall
        Bb
And I'm gone
                    Dm
Like I'm dancing on angels
        Cm                          Gm
And I'm gone through a crack in the past

Like a dead man walking (repeat intro through this part)
Like a dead man walking

Verse:
Three old men dancing under the lamplight
Shaking their sex and their bones
And the boys that we were
An alien nation in therapy
Sliding naked and new
Like a bad tempered child
On a rain slicked street

Chorus
repeat intro 4X
after this, he does a short instrumental section that i don't really know.  i think it's 
a chromatic walk up from F.
