Heroes

By David Bowie

From the album Heroes


D          G

D                  G
I,       I will be king
        D             G
And you, you will be queen
       C                       D
Though nothing will drive them away
       C                      D
We can beat them just for one day
          C         G                D
We can be Heroes        just for one day

D                  G
And you, you can be mean
     D                  G
And I, I'll drink all the time
             D                     G
'Cause we're lovers and that is a fact
          D                    G
Yes we're lovers and that is that

       C                      D
Though nothing will keep us together
               C                 D
We could steal time just for one day
          C     G             D
We can be Heroes for ever and ever

What do you say?


D                  G
I, I wish you could swim
         D                           G
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
       C                        D
Though nothing will keep us together
       C                      D
We can beat them for ever and ever
             C     G             D
Oh we can be Heroes just for one day


REPEAT 1st verse (sing an octave higher, sound desperate)


D           G
I, I can remember 
D              G
Standing by the wall
         D                  G
And the guards shot above our heads
        D                             G
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
       C                      D
And the Seine was on the other side
          C                       D
Oh we can beat them forever and ever
               C      G                D
Then we can be Heroes just for one day
