Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Lady Stardust  David Bowie

[A]People [C#]stared at the [F#m]makeup on his [D]face
[A]Laughed at his [F#m]long black hair[E], his animal [C#]grace
[F#m]The boy in the [D]bright blue jeans [A]jumped up on the [C#]stage
And [A]Lady stardust [E]sang his songs of [D]darkness and dis[E]grace

And he was [A]al[E]right, the [D]band was all to[E]gether
Yes he was [A]al[E]right, the [D]songs went on for[E]ever
And he was[Em] awful [Em(#7]nice   [Em7]really quite out of [Em6]sight
And he sang [A]all [E]night [D]long [E]
[A]The femme f[C#]atales emerged from [F#m]shadows to watch this [D]creature fair
[A]Boys stood up[F#m]on their chairs to [E]make thier point of [C#]view
[F#m]I smiled s[D]adly for a [A]love I could not o[C#]bey
And [A]Lady Stardust [E]sang his songs of [D]darkness and di[E]smay
And he was alright, the band was all together
Yes he was alright, the songs went on forever
And he was awful nice, really quite paradise
And he sang all night long

[D]Ooh, how I [D#dim]sighed when they [E]asked if I knew his name

Oh they were alright, the band was all together
Yes he was alright, and the song went on forever
He was up all night, really quite out of sight
He sang all night long
