Ziggy Stardust

David Bowie

 

G Bm

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good

C D

with Wierd and Gilly and the Spiders from Mars.

G Bm

He played it left hand, but made it too far

C D

became the special man, and we were Ziggy's band.

G Bm

Ziggy really sang, with screwed up eyes and

C D

screwed down hairdo like some cat from Japan.

G Bm

He could lick 'em by smiling, he could leave 'em to hang.

C D

He came on so loaded man, well hung and snow-white tan.

A G F F* F F* F F* F G

But where were the spiders,

A G F F* F F* F F* F G

while the fly tried to break our balls.

A G F F* F F* F F* F

Just the beer light to guide us.

G D

And so we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands.

 

G Bm

Ziggy played for time, jiving us that

C D

we were voodoo and the kids was just crass.

G Bm

He was the nazz with God-given ass.

C D

He took it all too far but boy could he play guitar.

A G F F* F F* F F* F G

Making love with his ego,

A G F F* F F* F F* F G

Ziggy sucked up into his mind

A G F F* F F* F F* F G

Like a leper messiah.

G D

When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.
