Subject: BIG BROTHER by David Bowie

this is one of my favourite bowie songs of all time.  it is off of the great
and enigmatic album -diamond dogs-.  it post-cedes 1984.  bowie is just so
great.  but anyway, here we go:

(music starts, bass plays an A note)

Bm            A
don~t talk of dust and roses
Bm           A
or should we powder our noses?
A              G
don~t live for last year~s capers
        D                             E
give me steel, give me steel, give me pulses unreal

Bm            A
we~ll build a glass asylum
Bm          A
with just a hint of mayhem
A              G
you~ll build a better whirlpool
         D                            E
we~ll be living from sin, then we can really begin

D              G          D      G
please savior, save your shores
D            G           Gb      A
help me, i~m graphically yours

Bm        G           A
some one to claim us, some one to follow
            Bm        G           A
some one to shame us, some brave apollo
            Bm       G             A
some one to fool us, some one like you

E                   D-B5-A
we want you big brother, big brother

break: Bm   A   G    Bm   A   G   Bm   A   G
E    G     E    G

G                       Em
i know you think you~re awful square
            C                         G
that you~ve made every one and you~ve been everywhere
C                  G              D                 A
lord, i~d take an overdose if you knew what~s going down

Bm        G           A
some one to claim us, some one to follow
            Bm        G           A
some one to shame us, some brave apollo
            Bm       G             A
some one to fool us, some one like you
           Bm        G           A
some one to claim us, some one to follow
            Bm        G           A
some one to shame us, some brave apollo
            Bm       G             A
some one to fool us, some one like you
           Bm        G           A
some one to claim us, some one to follow
            Bm        G           A
some one to shame us, some brave apollo
            Bm       G             A
some one to fool us, some one like you

E
we want you big brother

About the artist behind Big Brother:

"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]
