Rock 'n' Roll Suicide  David Bowie




Time takes a c[C]igarette puts it in your m[E7]outh
You pull on your f[F]inger, then another f[G]inger, then your c[Am]igarette
[G] The wall to wall is c[F]alling it l[G]ingers, then you for[Am]get
[G]Oh y[F]ou're a rock'n roll suicide
[C] [G] You're too old to l[C]ose it too young to c[E7]hoose it
And the c[F]lock waits so p[G]atiently on your s[Am]ong
[G] You walk past a c[F]afe but you don't [G]eat when you lived too l[Am]ong
[G]Oh no no [F]no you're a rock'n roll suicide
[C] [G] Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble ac[E7]ross the road
But the [F]day breaks ins[G]tead so you hurry h[Am]ome
[G] Don't let the s[F]un blast your s[G]hadow
don't let the m[E7]ilk floats ride your m[Am]ind EADGBE
F D9 G7 (D9 = xx4210)
So natural religiously unkind
Oh no love you're not a[C]lone
You're watching yourself but you're t[A]oo unfair
you got your h[C]ead all tangled but if I could only m[A]ake you care
Oh [C#m]no love you're not al[G#m]one
no matter w[B]hat or who you've b[D#m]een
no matter [Bbm]when or where you've s[C#]een
all the k[B]nives to lacerate your b[D#m]rain
I've had my s[Bbm]hare I'll help you with the p[C#]ain you're not alone
[Bb] [C#] Just turn on me you're
[Bb]not alone l[C#]et's turn on me and be
you're not alone gimme your hands
you're wonderful gimme your hands
you're wonderful gimme your hands
