INTRO:  F#  D#m7  C#  B
        F#  D#m7  C#  B
 

F#        E                  F#
All of my life I've tried so hard
         C#               D
Doing my best with what I had
             C#               D    G#
Nothing much happened all the same
F#         E              F#
Something about me stood apart
             C#                  D
A whisper of hope that seemed to fail
          C#                   G#
Maybe I'm born right out of my time
         B             F#
Breaking my life in two
 

CHORUS 1:
F#         C#    
Throw me tomorrow
B             G#           F#
Now that I've really got a chance
           C#
Throw me tomorrow
Bb           G#           F#
Everything's falling into place
           C#
Throw me tomorrow
B         G#             F#
Seeing my past to let it go
           C#
Throw me tomorrow
Bb       G#    F#      B
Only for you I don't regret
           F#
That I was Thursday's child


D#m7    C#       B                   F#
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday born I was
D#m7    C#       B                   F#
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday born I was

 
            E                 F#
Sometimes I cried my heart to sleep
          C#                D
Shuffling days and lonesome nights
             C#                 D   G#
Sometimes my courage fell to my feet
F#        E            F#
Lucky old sun is in my sky
           C#                D
Nothing prepared me for your smile
             C#             G#
Lighting the darkness of my soul
             B        F#
Innocence in your arms

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday born I was Thursday's Child
D#m7    C#       B                   F#
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday born I was
D#m7    C#       B                   F#
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday born I was
D#m7    C#       B                   D#m7  C#  B  
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday born I was

Martin Lorimer has this to say:
"I'm sure most of the C# are C#m in the verse and first bit of chorus. and some 
of the G# are minors as well. The D#m7 also sounds better as a minor chord."

About the artist behind Thursdays Child Chords:

"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]
