Somebody Up There Likes Me  David Bowie

David Bowie - Somebody Up There Likes Me
Album - Young Americans
He's [A]everybody's token, on everybody's wall,
blessing all the papers, thanking one and all
[E]Hugging all the babies, kissing all the ladies
[A]Knowing all that you think about from writing on the wall
[D]He's so divine, [C]his soul shines
[B]Breaks the night, [A]sleep tight
[D]His ever loving face [C]smiles on the whole human race
[B]He says I'm somebody[A]
[D]He's got his eye on your soul, [C]his hand on your heart
He says [B]don't hurry, baby
Some[F]body up there (somebody) likes me
Interlude: D E B x2
[A]He's the savage son of the tv tube planets wrote the day was due,
All the wisest men around predicted that a man was found
[E]Who looked a lot like you and me, yeah everyone with sense could see
[A]Nothing left his eye unmoved, he had the plan, he had to use
Somebody [D]so divine,[C] his soul shines
[B]Somebody Breaks the night, [A]sleep tight
[D]Somebody His ever loving face[C] smil[B]es on the [A]whole human race
[D]He's got his eye on your soul, his [C]hand on your heart
He says [B]Don't hurry, baby
Some[F]body up there (somebody)
[D]Somebody plays my[C] song in tune
Makes me, makes me[B], makes me stronger for you[A]
[D]Was a way when we were young, that [C]any man was judged by what he'd done
[B]But now you pick them on the screen [A](what they look like) Where they've been
[D]Keep your eye on your soul[C] and your hand on your heart
He says [B]don't hurry, baby
Some[F]body up there (somebody)
[D]Leaders come[C], they hate all the peo[B]ple know
That given [A]time, the leaders go
[D]Tell me, can they hold you under their [C]spell
Can they walk and hold you as [B]well as a smile like Valentino?
Could he [A]sell you anything?
[D]Keep your eyes on your soul[C], keep your hand on your [B]heart he says don't hurry, baby
Some[F]body up there (somebody) likes me
