God knows im good David Bowie
I was wa[Am]lking through the co[Am/G]unters of a n[Bm]ational con[C]cern
And a [F]cash machine was s[C]pitting by my sh[G]oulder[C] [C]
And I s[Am]aw the mul[Am/G]titude of faces, ho[Bm]nest, rich and cl[C]ean
As the me[F]rchandise exch[C]anged and money ro[G]ared[C] [C]
And a w[Am]oman hot with w[Am/G]orry slyly s[Am]lipped a tin of a st[Am/G]ewing steak
I[Bm]nto the paper [C]bag at her si[G]de[C] [C]
And her f[Am]ace was white with [Am/G]fear in case her a[Am]ctions were o[Am/G]bserved
So she clo[Bm]sed her eyes to k[C]eep her conscience bl[G]ind[C] [C]
Crying "G[Am]od knows I'm g[Am/G]ood, G[Am/F#]od knows I'm g[F]ood
G[F]od knows I'm g[E]ood, G[Am]od may look the o[Am/G]ther way to[E]day
[Am]God knows I'm g[Am/G]ood, G[Am/F#]od knows I'm go[F]od
F E Am Am/G E (intro)
God knows I'm good, God may look the other way today"
Then she moved toward the exit clutching tightly at her paper bag
Perspiration trickled down her forehead
And her heart it leapt inside her as the hand laid on her shoulder
She was led away bewildered and amazed
Through her deafened ears the cash machines were shrieking on the counter
As her escort asked her softly for her name
And a crowd of honest people rushed to help a tired old lady
Who had fainted to the whirling wooden floor
Crying "God knows I'm good, God knows I'm good
God knows I'm good, surely God won't look the other way
God knows I'm good, God knows I'm good
God knows I'm good, surely God won't look the other way" Hey!
