Conversation Piece  David Bowie

[G]   [D]                                  
[G]I took this walk to ease my mind[D]
[Am]    To find out what's gnawing at me
[C]    Wouldn't think to look at me,
[G]                that I've [D]spent a lot of time in education
[C]        It all seems so long ago
[G]       I'm a [D]thinker, not a talker
[C]        I've no-one to talk to, anyway
I [G]can't see the [F]road
for the [C]rain in my e[G]yes
[G]Ahh[F]h .[C].. [G]
I live above the grocers s[D]tore,
[Am]        owned by an Austrian
[C]        He often calls me down to eat
[G]        And he j[D]okes about his broken English,
[C]        tries to be a friend to me
[G]        But for [D]all my years of reading conversation,
[C]        I stand without a word to say
I c[G]an't see the [F]bridge
for the [C]rain in my [G]eyes

(now it changes key, everything goes up 1 step)

And the [A]world is full of [E]life
[Bm]        Full of folk who don't know me
[D]        And they walk in twos or threes or more

[A]        While the l[Bm]ight that shines above the grocer's store
[D]        Investigates my face so rudely
[A]        And my e[bm]ssays lying scattered on the floor
[D]        Fulfill their needs just by being there
And my h[A]ands shake, my h[E]ead hurts,
my v[D]oice sticks in[A]side my throat
I'm invi[A]sible and d[E]umb,
And [D]no-one will re[A]call me
And I ca[A]n't see the wa[G]ter
for the tears in my ey-y-yes
