Dead Man Walking  David Bowie

This is an acoustic version of David Bowie's dance/rock track from his album Earthling.
a video of him playing it on Conan:
Tuned down one step.
|F|"|G|"| 4X
Alternate lifting the finger off of the low E string. listen to the recording to get
Verse (Basically repeat the intro but without lifting off from the low E):
He swivels his head
Tears his eyes from the screen
As his past puts him back in Atlantic City
There's not even a demon in Heaven or Hell
Is it all just human disguise?
As I walk down the aisle
And I'm [F]gone gone gone
Now I'm older than m[G]ovies
And I [F]know who's there
When silhouettes [G]fall
And I'm [Bb]gone
Like I'm dancing on [Dm]angels
And I'm [Cm]gone through a crack in the [Gm]past
Like a dead man walking (repeat intro through this part)
Like a dead man walking
Three old men dancing under the lamplight
Shaking their sex and their bones
And the boys that we were
An alien nation in therapy
Sliding naked and new
Like a bad tempered child
On a rain slicked street
repeat intro 4X
after this, he does a short instrumental section that i don't really know. i think it's
a chromatic walk up from F.
