Hang On to Yourself  David Bowie

(words & music by David Bowie)
This song is featured off of Bowie~s -The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
and the Spiders From Mars- album. It is quite simple and fun to play as
are most of Bowie~s songs. Before I write down the chords, I must explain
that the chords G5* and B5* are played respectively:
G5*
 
 E --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3-
 B --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3- (of course, it would be auspicious to
 G --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0- accent the bass notes to give it that
 D --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0- cool song that the song cannot live
 A --x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x-x- without. -h- stands for hammer-on)
 E --2h3--3-3--2h3--3-3--2h3-3-

B5*
 
 E ----------------------------
 B ----------------------------
 G --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4- (this time instead of hammering on, it
 D --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4- would be better to slide from the first
 A --1s2--2-2--1s2--2-2--1s2-2- fret to the second playing B5*)
 E ----------------------------

The song with the chords are:
D-C-G5*
D-C-G5*
Well she is a [F#m]tongue twisting storm, she will [A]come to the show tonight
Bm F#5-A5-B5*

Bm F#5-A5-B5*
Laying on electric dreams
So come [C]on, come [D]on, we~ve [C]really got a good thing [D]going
Well come [C]on, come [D]on, if you [C]think we~re gonna make it
You [A]better hang on to yourself
D-C-G5*
D-C-G5*
We can~t [F#m]dance, we don~t talk much, we just [A]ball and play
Bm F#5-A5-B5*
But then we move like tigers on vaseline
Well the [F#m]bitter comes out better on a [A]stolen guitar
Bm F#5-A5-B5*
You~re the blessed, we~re the spiders from Mars
So come [C]on, come [D]on, we~ve [C]really got a good thing [D]going
