Ashes to Ashes

By David Bowie


Am	G	Dm	Am

G                                   Em
  Do you remember a guy that's been     In such an early song
C                                         D
  I've heard a rumor from ground control    Oh no don't say it's true
F                                      C         G/B               F
They got a message from the action man I'm happy hope you're happy too
                           G              E/G#
I've loved all I've needed love Sordid de-tails following
A                                        E
  The shrieking of nothing is killing me    Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis
G                                             D    C                   Em
  And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair   But the planet is glowing
F              G             C             Am
Ashes to Ashes funk to funky We know major Tom's a junky
F                      G               Am       G      Dm     Am
Strung out in heaven's high Hitting an all time low
G                              Em
  Time and again I tell myself    I'll stay clean tonight
C                                           D
  But the little green wheels are following me Oh no not again
F                                   C         G/B               F
  I'm stuck with a valuable friend  I'm happy hope you're happy too
                       G              E/G#  A
One flash of light but no smoking pis-tol     I've never done good things
E                            G                                      D
  I've never done bad things   I've never done anything out of the blue
F                                   C                       Em
  I want an axe to break the ice  I want to come down right now
F                G             C             Am
  Ashes to Ashes funk to funky We know major Tom's a junky
F                        G                Am       G    Dm    Am
  Strung out in heaven's high  Hitting an all time low

Am              G                     Dm                   Am          (repeat)
My mama said to get things done You'd better not mess with major Tom
