Man who sold the World

David Bowie

 DmA7Dm
    We passed upon the stairs, We spoke of what and when
 A7F
 Although I wasn't there, he said i was his friend 
 CGmA
 Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eyes
 DmC
                       (play r2)
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

 CF
    (play r2)    (r3)
Oh no, not me
 BbmF
                   (r3)
I never lost control
 CF
    (r2)      
Your'e face to face
 BbmA
                  (repeat intro. )
with the man who sold the world

 DmA7Dm
  I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
 A7F
I searched for foreign land,  for years and years i roamed 
 CGmA
I gazed a gazely stare  at all the millions here  
 DmC
We must have died  alone' a long long time ago

 CF
              
Who knows? not me
 BbmF
                      (r3)
We never lost control

 CF
      (r2)      
Your'e face to face
 BbmA
                    (repeat intro. )
with the man who sold the world
