He looked a lot like Che Guevara drove a diesel van
D                               E
Kept his gun in quiet seclusion such a humble man
G           A     G               A
The only survivor of the National People's Gang
D        C       D              C
Panic in Detroit I asked for an autograph

Panic in Detroit

D                            E
He laughed at accidental sirens that broke the evening gloom
    D                                  E
The police had warned of repercussions they followed none too soon
G            A         G                  A
A trickle of strangers were all that were left alive

Panic in Detroit

D                                 C
Putting on some clothes I made my way to school, ooh ooh
      Bm               C                G
And I found my teacher crouching in his overalls
  D                                      C
I screamed and ran to smash my favourite slot machine, ooh ooh
    Bm                C                  D              G  D  G...with solo tab
And jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights

INTRO

D                                E
Having scored a trillion dollars made a run back home
D                                  E
Found him slumped across the table a gun and me alone
G            A      G            A
I ran to the window looked for a plane or two
D        C       D               C
Panic in Detroit he'd left me an autograph
D         G           A

About the artist behind Panic In Detroit:

"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]
