Hang On To Yourself
	(words & music by David Bowie)


This song is featured off of Bowie~s -The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
and the Spiders From Mars- album.  It is quite simple and fun to play as
are most of Bowie~s songs.  Before I write down the chords, I must explain
that the chords G5* and B5* are played respectively:

  G5*

E --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3--|
B --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3--|  (of course, it would be auspicious to
G --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0--|   accent the bass notes to give it that
D --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0--|   cool song that the song cannot live
A --x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x-x--|   without.  -h- stands for hammer-on)
E --2h3--3-3--2h3--3-3--2h3-3--|


  B5*

E ----------------------------|
B ----------------------------|
G --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4-|  (this time instead of hammering on, it
D --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4-|   would be better to slide from the first
A --1s2--2-2--1s2--2-2--1s2-2-|   fret to the second playing B5*)
E ----------------------------|


The song with the chords are:

D-C-G5*
D-C-G5*

              F#m                             A
Well she is a tongue twisting storm, she will come to the show tonight
Bm                      F#5-A5-B5*
Praying to the light machine
             F#m                        A
She wants my honey not my money she~s a funky-thigh collector
Bm                   F#5-A5-B5*
Laying on electric dreams

        C        D         C                       D
So come on, come on, we~ve really got a good thing going
          C        D          C
Well come on, come on, if you think we~re gonna make it
    A
You better hang on to yourself

         F#m                                A
We can~t dance, we don~t talk much, we just ball and play
            Bm                        F#5-A5-B5*
But then we move like tigers on vaseline
         F#m                          A
Well the bitter comes out better on a stolen guitar
           Bm                              F#5-A5-B5*
You~re the blessed, we~re the spiders from Mars


        C        D         C                       D
So come on, come on, we~ve really got a good thing going
          C        D          C
Well come on, come on, if you think we~re gonna make it
    A
You better hang on to yourself

About the artist behind Hang On To Your Self 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]
