Bombers Chords
BOMBERS- David Bowie

CHORUS 1:
C   G                Bb F
All clear wailed the si-rens
C  G            Bb   F
Sunshine on the wasteland
C   G                  Bb    F
Old man sitting in the white sand
E                    A            F                 E   
Think we're in for a big surprise right between the 
E7
eyes

C              G             Bb                    F
Seemed a good idea to drop a bomb on the wasteland here
Dm           C                        Bb         F
Only one man could be seen and he was old and so serene
C                  G                 Bb                  
Captain sat in his deckchair and the red light flashed 
F
beware
Dm               C               Bb                      
Pilot felt quite big time as the bomb sailed through 
F
the air
          C                      Dm
Well they danced & sang when the bang went bang
        Em                         F              Bb
but the lights bulked out when the smoke began to clear
                  G    G/F  G/E  G/D
It was positively queer

CHORUS 2

C              G        Bb                  F
'Die' said the General, 'Cobblers' said the man
       Dm              C             Bb          F
So the Pentagon sent a cable and the Queen a telegram
C                G
A-bombs, H-bombs even very small ones
Bb                F
Ripped apart that sand
         Dm                C               Bb             
Till the stench was just revolting and the sky a 
F
creamish tan
        C                            Dm
But the soldier said "Sir, there's a crack in the world"
        Em                          F                 
And the blippers went spark and the bits went far and 
Bb
wide
                 G     G/F  G/E  G/D
how the universe sighed



CHORUS 3:
C   G                Bb F
All clear wailed the si-rens
C  G            Bb   F
Sunshine on the wasteland
C   G                  Bb    F
Old man sitting in the white sand
E                   A            F                 E   
Think were in for a big surprise right between the eyes

CHORUS 4:
C   G                Bb F
All clear wailed the si-rens
C  G            Bb   F
Sunshine on the wasteland
C   G                  Bb    F
Old man sitting in the white sand
E                   A            F                 E   E7
Think were in for a big surprise right between the eyes

Dm                 G                    C               F
When the smoke had blown away there was nothing left to view
         Eb                            D            F              C
Except a man dear lord who looked like you floating high up in the sky!

About the artist behind Bombers 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]
