Candidate  David Bowie

(Bm E A) 3x
[F#m] Inside every teenage girl there's a [E]fountain
[F#m] Inside every young pair of paints there's a [E]mountain
[Bm] Inside every [E]mother's eyes [A] is Tommy Tinkrem's [F#m]bed
[Bm] Inside every [E]candidate [A] waits a grateful [F#m]dead
I make it a [Bm]thing, when I [F#]on my own to re[G]lief myself
I make it a [Bm]thing, when I ga[F#]zelle on stage to be[G]lieve in myself
I make it a [Bm]thing, to glance in [F#]window panes and look [E]pleased with myself
Yeah, and p[G]retend I'm [E]walking [Bm]home
(Intro) 2x
[F#m] I took it so bad, I sat in the [E]correction room
[F#m] Took me a fag, and a [E]kick in the moon
Well, I[Bm] ain't gonna suck no [E]radar wing because in[A]side this tin is [F#m]tin
[Bm] Would you like [E]techno plate [A]'cause I'm your candi[F#m]date, oh yea[E]h
It's a matter of [Bm]life and the [F#]way you walk, you've got a [G]Brylcream queen
It' a matter of [Bm]fact in the [F#]things you talk, that keeps his [G]passport clean
A matter of [Bm]fact that a [F#]cock ain't a cock on a [E]twelve inch screen
So I'll pre[G]tend I'm [E]walking [Bm]home
(Intro) 4x
[F#m] You don't have to scream a lot to keep an [E]age in tune
[F#m] You don't have to scream a lot [E]to predict monsoons
[Bm] You don't have to pa[E]int my contact black [A] now I've hustled a [F#m]pair of jeans
[Bm] Do I have to g[E]ive your money back [A] when I'm the Fuhrer[F#m]ling[E]
I'll make you a [Bm]deal I'll say I [F#]came from Earth and my [G]tongue is taped
I'll make you a [Bm]deal you can [F#]get your kicks on the [G]candidate
I'll make you a [Bm]deal for your [F#]future's sake I'm the [E]candidate
Let's pret[G]end we're [E]walking [Bm]home
(Intro)...... repeat until fade
[Bm] [E] [A] [F#m] [F#] [G]
