G                                          Em
 Pushing through the market square,           so many mothers sighing
A                                          C/G
 News had just come over,                     we had five years left to cry in
G                                          Em
 News guy wept and told us,                   earth was really dying
A                                          C/G
 Cried so much his face was wet,              then I knew he was not lying
 I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
 I saw boys, toys, electric irons and T.V.'s
 My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
 I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
                 Am                        C/G  
 And all the fat-skinny people, 
                        Am                 C/G  
 and all the tall-short people,
                    G                      C/G  
 and all the nobody people, 
 and all the somebody people
                                  Am       C/G 
 I never thought I'd need so many people

G                                          Em
 A girl my age went off her head,            hit some tiny children
A                                          C/G
 If the black hadn't a-pulled her off,       I think she would have killed them
G                                          Em
 A soldier with a broken arm,                fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
A                                          C/G
 A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest,and a queer Threw up at the sight of that
G                                          Em
 I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlor,   drinking milk shakes cold and long
A                                          C/G
 Smiling and waving and looking so fine,     don't think You knew you were in this song
 And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
 And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
 Your face, your race, the way that you talk
 I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

 We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
 We've got five years, what a surprise
 We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
 We've got five years, that's all we've got

About the artist behind Five Years 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]
