The Children of the summer's end
Em                       Am
Gathered in the dampened grass
   Bm                            Bb
We played Our songs and felt the London sky
C                           G
Resting on our hands it was God's land
       C                       G     Dm7
It was ragged and naive it was Heaven

G                          Dm7
Touch, We touched the very soul
   Em                     Am
Of holding each and every life
   Bm                         Bb   
We claimed the very source of joy ran through
   C                          G
It didn't, but it seemed that way
  C                           G  Eb  C
I kissed a lot of people that day

C              Em  
Oh, to capture just one drop 
   C7           Am7                F  
Of all the ecstasy that swept that afternoon
   G                F              C
To paint that love upon a white balloon
                    Em             C7      
And fly it from the toppest top of all the tops 
     Am7              F
That man has pushed beyond his brain
  G            F                  C      
Satori must be something just the same
 
   D                      Dmaj7
We scanned the skies with rainbow eyes 
    D7              D6              G6 
And saw machines of every shape and size
   A                  G               D   
We talked with tall Venusians passing through
                   Dmaj7
And Peter tried to climb aboard 
        D7                D6         
But the Captain shook his head
     G6       
And away they soared
A                    G             D
Climbing through the ivory vibrant cloud
A                   G               D
Someone passed some bliss among the crowd
       A                  G  
And We walked back to the road, unchained

WEIRD BIT

D              C                      G                   D
The sun machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party, ah ah ah
    D              C                      G                   D
The sun machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party, ah ah ah
    D              C                      G                   D
The sun machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party, ah ah ah
    D              C                      G                   D
The sun machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party, ah ah ah

Repeat until fade out...

About the artist behind Memory Of A Free Festival:

"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]
