All the Madmen  David Bowie

ALL THE MADMEN from The Man Who Sold The World
INTRO: See tab at end...
[E5]Day after day they [E7sus4]send my friends a[E]way
To [E7sus4]mansions cold and [E]grey to the [F]far side of town
Where the [Dm]thin men stalk the [Em]streets while the [F]sane stay under[E5]ground
Day after day they [E7sus4]tell me I can [E]go they [E7sus4]tell me I can [E]blow
To the [F]far side of town where it's [Dm]pointless to be [Em]high
For it's [F]such a long way [E]down, so I tell them that
I can fly I will scream [Dm]I will break my [Em]arm
[Dm]I will do me [E]harm
Here I stand foot in hand [Dm]talking to my [Em]wall
I'm [Dm]not quite right at [E]all am I?
[F]Don't set me free I'm as [G]heavy as can be
Just my [F]librium and me and my [E]EST makes three
CHORUS 1:
'Cause I'd [A]rather stay here with [E]all the madmen
Than [F#m]perish with the [A]sad men roaming [C#]free
And I'd [A]rather play here with [E]all the madmen
For I'm [F#m]quite content they're [A]all as sane as [Bm]me[E]
SOLO: A F#m Bm G
SPOKEN: Where can the horizon lie when a nation hides its organic minds
In a cellar dark and grim they must be very dim
[E]Day after day they [E7sus4]take some brain a[E]way
Then [E7sus4]turn my face a[E]round to the [F]far side of town
And [Dm]tell me that it's [Em]real then [F]ask me how I [E]feel
SOLO 2: E F Dm E
Here I stand foot in hand talking to my [F]wall
I'm [Dm]not quite right at [E]all
[F]Don't set me free I'm as [G]helpless as can be
My li[F]bido's split on me gimme some [E]good ole lobotomy
CHORUS 2
[A]Zane zane zane [F#m]ouvre le chien
[Bm]Zane zane zane [G]ouvre le chien
[A]Zane zane zane [F#m]ouvre le chien
[Bm]Zane zane zane [G]ouvre le chien
Repeat until fade...
