                   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                       A                                                      
Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eye 

                    Dm                          RIFF 2     RIFF 2(w/distortion)
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

   RIFF 2    RIFF 3
Oh no,   Not me,

  Abm            F
I never lost control,

       RIFF 2   RIFF 3       
You're face, to face

         Abm              A        
With the man who sold the world

RIFF 1 (w/distortion)
                       A7                         Dm                                           
I smiled and shook his hand, and made my way back home. 

                        A7                          F 
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed

                 C                          A                                                 
I gazed a gazely stare, at all the millions here 

                 Dm                              RIFF 2     RIFF 2(w/distortion)
We must've died alone, a long long time ago

    RIFF 2       RIFF 3
Who knows?   Not me,

   Abm            F
We never lost control,

       RIFF 2   RIFF 3
You're face, to face

         Abm              A         
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]
