Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

The Buggles 
Astroboy (And the Proles on Parade) (1979)
(Geoff Downes, Trevor Horn)

From: "The Age of Plastic"

The chord sheet only contains the basic chords which may be enough to 
strum along on a guitar. The song is pretty enough that way.

But what goes on behind/below the surface is impressive, too. I transcribed 
the INTERLUDE and the keyboard chords and the haunting rhythm of VERSE 
and BRIDGE in the tab below for a second guitar or whatever is available.

E
All of those wild American bilinguals
    Dsus2                A/E             E
Who talk to you in Paris of their lonely lives
E
School days and last days out there in the Midwest
     Dsus2                     A/E          E
They climb on their liners and rejoin their wives

BRIDGE
Bm
Walking down boulevards electric eyes
      Cmaj7
Would gaze at the waveforms and gasp at their size

Let them be lonely and say you don't care

Una with long hair will stand by your side
        Dsus2                         A/E          E
And the friends who were hungry could swallow your pride
E
Chromium pets that video screens would show
Dsus2                    A/E           E
Pictures of helplessness old kings and queens

BRIDGE
Bm
Radio stations that fade as in dust
Cmaj7
All their transmitters are crumbling with rust
