Some days ago i saw a request for this song.
Here it is, dedicated to the memory Kurt Cobain, who made
a great cover of this song at MTV Unplugged.

Bye

                ****************************************

                         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

About the artist behind The Man Who Sold The World Tab:

"Ashes to Ashes" is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, also a #1 hit. As well as its musical qualities, it is noted for its innovative video, directed by Bowie and David Mallet. Bowie has said that with this song he was "wrapping up the seventies really for myself, and that seemed a good enough epitaph for it".[1]
