Watch That Man - David Bowie
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: adslam3
This is just the chords version with lyrics. It's based off of my tab.
This is also my first tab of just chords, so hopefully it comes out right.
There is a chord chart at the bottom.
Tuning: Standard
INTRO (played twice): G, Cadd9, Em, A
VERSE 1:
[A]Shakey threw a party that lasted all night
[D]Everybody drank a lot of something nice
There was an o[E]ld fashioned band of married men
Looking up to me for enc[F#m]ouragement - it was so-so
[A]The ladies looked bad but the music was sad
[D]No one took their eyes off Lorraine
She s[E]himmered and she strolled like a Chicago moll
Her feathers looked better and [F#m]better - it was so-so
BRIDGE:
[D]Yea! it was [A]time to unfreeze
When the [B]Reverend Alabaster danced[D] on his knees
[D]Slam! so it [A]wasn't a game
[E]Cracking all the mirrors in shame
CHORUS:
[A]Watch [D]that [G]man! Oh honey, watch that [C]man
He [D]talks like a jerk but he could [C]eat you with a fork and [G]spoon
[A]Watch [D]that [G]man! Oh honey, watch that [C]man
He [D]walks like a jerk, but he'[C]s only taking care of the [B]room
Must be in [C]tune
INTRO again: G, Cadd9, Em, A, G, Cadd9, Em, A
VERSE 2:
[A]A Benny Goodman fan painted holes in his hands
So [D]Shakey hung him up to dry
The [E]pundits were joking, the manholes were smoking and every bottle battled
with the [F#m]reason why
The [A]girl on the phone wouldn't leave me alone
A [D]throw back from someone's LP
A [E]lemon in a bag played the Tiger Rag
And the bodies on the screen stopped [F#m]bleeding
BRIDGE 2:
[D]Yeah! I was [A]shaking like a leaf
For I [B]couldn't understand the conv[D]ersation
[D]Yeah! I r[A]an to the street, [E]looking for information
CHORUS 2:
[A]Watch [D]that [G]man! Oh honey, watch that [C]man
He [D]talks like a jerk but he could [C]eat you with a fork and [G]spoon
[A]Watch [D]that [G]man! Oh honey, watch that [C]man
He [D]walks like a jerk, but he'[C]s only taking care of the [B]room
Must be in [C]tune
ENDING: (the repetition of "watch that man")*
[G] Watch that man [Cadd9]
*NOTE: For the remainder of the ending, its just G and Cadd9. Listen
for the changes, they are easy to hear. And that's it!
CHORDS USED: You can use whatever variation you want, barre chords, power
