                David Bowie - The man who sold the world
                ****************************************

                         Introduction: play r1

       Dm                           A7                       Dm
          We passed upon the stairs, We spoke of was and when
                                   A7                        F
           Although I wasn't there, he said i was his friend
                                     C                Gm A
           Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eyes
                                    Dm                     C (play r2)
             I thought you died alone, a long long time ago
                          C (play r2)   F (r3)
                          Oh no,        not me
                            Bbm               F (r3)
                          I never lost control
                                     C (r2)      F
                          Your'e face      to face
                             Bbm              A (repeat intro. )
                    with the man who sold the world

        I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
       I searched for form and land, for years and years i roamed
            I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
             We must have died alone' a long long time ago
                           Who knows? not me
                         We never lost control
                          Your'e face to face
                    with the man who sold the world
