Width Of A Circle Chords
THE WIDTH OF A CIRCLE Tabbed by Brian Drew

INTRO:  Lead Riff, Acoustic comes in
        Bass comes in, Full band plays riff
        E E, E D C# D D, D C# B C# C#, C# A C# C# : X4 TOTAL

        E  E7  E

       A                                 E  E7  E
In the corner of the morning in the past
        A                                  E  E7  E
I would sit and blame the master first and last
        G                       A
All the roads were straight and narrow
        G                      A
And the prayers were small and yellow
        G                  G#          E   E7  E
and the rumour spread that I was aging fast
       A            C#m             F#m           D
Then I ran across a monster who was sleeping by a tree
      F                          F#          A   G  E  E7  E  E7  E
And I looked and frowned and the monster was me

       A                           E  E7  E
Well I said hello and I said hello
      A                                        E  E7  E
And I asked why not and I replied I don't know
      G              A                 G            A
So we asked a simple blackbird who was happy as can be
       G                  G#               E   E7  E
And he laughed insane and quipped Kahil Gibran
     A                 C#m             F#m            D
So I cried for all the others till the day was nearly through
      F             F#           A       G  E  E7  E  E7  E
For I realised that Gods a young man too

      E  E7  E
      E  E7  E

     A                                E  E7  E
So I said so long and I waved bye bye
      A                                  E  E7  E
And I smashed my soul and traded my mind
    G                A              G             A
Got layed by a young bordello I was vaguely half asleep
             G          G#                 E    E7  E
For which my reputation swept back home in drag
        A             C#m           F#m        D
And the moral of this magic spell negotiate my hide
     F               F#          A    G
When God did take my logic for a ride
         E   E7  E  E7  E    
Riding a long

   D                                         C  G
He swallowed his pride and puckered his lips
    D                                         C  G
And showed me the leather belt round his hips
   D                                   C
my knees were shaking my cheeks aflame
   G           D
He said you'll never go down to the Gods again
            C  G
Turn around go back

He struck the ground a cavern appeared
And I smelt the burning pit of fear
We crashed a thousand yards below
I said do it again do it again
            C  G
Turn around go back

    D                          C  G
His nebulous body swayed above
    D                               C  G
His tongue swollen with devils love
    D                        C
The snake and I a venom high
  G    D
I said do it again do it again
            C  G
Turn around go back

Breathe breathe breathe deeply
And I was seething breathing deeply
A spitting sentry horned and tailed 
D               C  G
Waiting for you

        Ends on an A

OUTRO:  F  Eb  D  Dsus4  D

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]
