Karma Man
Intro  D  Bm  G  E

D                                     Bm
Fingertip sunlit sideshow stalls they throw the balls

G                                 A                   B
At coconut fur that hides behind the colored shades that blind your eyes

D                                                 Bm
Every child's mother holds an ice-cream cone they circle round

G                                          A                      B
Percieved unknown by an eye that peers from a hole in the tent where no one goes

F#m                               G          E 
A figure sitting cross-legged on the floor he's clogged and clothed in

G                A
saffron robes his beads are all he owns

B    Ebm   A     G#m
Slow down, slow down

E                                     Ebm          F#   F#7
Someone must have said let's slow him down

B    Ebm   A    G#m
Slow down, slow down

E                                      Ebm          F#   F#7
It's pictured on the arms of the karma man

Fairy tale skin depicting scenes from human zoos
Impermanent toys like peace and war, a gentle face you've seen before.
Karma man tattood on your side the wheel of life
I see my times and who I've been I only live (dig?) now and I don't know why

I struggle hard to take these pictures in, but
All my friends can see its just the pinkness of his skin

Slow down, slow down
Someone must have said, let's slow him down  (x2)

Outro (uncertain)  B  G#m  E  B

About the artist behind Karma Man:

"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]
