Ashes To Ashes
Ashes to Ashes


[Intro]

Am///   G///    Dm///   Am///


[Verse]

G                                Em 
Do you remember a guy that's been in such an early song?
C                                     D
I've heard a rumor from ground control oh no don't say it's true  
F                                        C         G/B               F
They got a message from the action man, "I'm happy hope you're happy too
                           G              E/G#
I've loved all I've needed love, sordid details following"
A                                        E
The shrieking of nothing is killing, just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis
     G                                      D
And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair 
C                                         Em
But I'm hoping to kick, but the planet is glowing


[Chorus]

F               G              C             Am
Ashes to Ashes, funk to funky, we know Major Tom's a junky
F                      G                Am
Strung out in heaven's high, hitting an all time low


[Instrumental]

G  Dm  Am  Am  G  Dm  Am


[Verse]

G                           Em
Time and again I tell myself I'll stay clean tonight
C                                         D
But the little green wheels are following me, oh no not again
F                                 C         G/B               F
I'm stuck with a valuable friend, I'm happy hope you're happy too
                    G                E/G#
One flash of light, but no smoking pistol 
A
I've never done good things
E                         G                                D
I've never done bad things I never did anything out of the blue, woah-a-wo
F                                 C
I want an axe to break the ice, I want to come down right now


[Chorus]

F               G              C             Am 
Ashes to ashes, funk to funky, we know Major Tom's a junky
F                      G                 Am
Strung out in heaven's high,  hitting an all time low

G///  Dm///  Am///


[Outro]

Am              G                      Dm                   Am
My mama said to get things done, you'd better not mess with Major Tom

REPEAT AND FADE

About the artist behind Ashes To Ashes:

"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]
