G - Cadd9 - G - Cadd9

C           G
There's a man back a-ways
Em                        C
Who believes at where he is
And there's a girl
     Bm            D
Up ahead who says she knows

C       G
And the street overflows
          Em           Bm
With the folk who understand
             G        Bm      D
But for the guy who can't be seen
           Am         D
He's the Shadow Man 
                C               G
And the Shadow Man is close at hand

C                 G
Take a turn and see his smile
           Em           C
Made of nothing but loneliness
             G              Bm
Just take a walk and be a friend
To the Shadow Man

C                     G
You can call him Joe, you can call him Sam
            Em                 Bm
You should call and see who answers
          G     Bm        D                     Am    D
For he promises to come running, guided by the truth
                C             G  
But the Shadow Man is really you

D                     G
Look in his eyes and see your reflection
C                      Am
Look to the stars and see his eyes
        D                        C
He'll show you tomorrow, he'll show you the sorrows
     Bm          D
Of what you did today

C                     G
You can call him foe, you can call him friend
            Em                 Bm
You should call and see who answers
         G         Bm        D                 Am   D
For he knows your eyes are drawn to the road ahead
                C                         G
And the Shadow Man is waiting round the bend
C               G
Oh, the Shadow Man
C          G
Ohooooo oooo
Shadow man, shadow man 
G                                                  C
It's really you, it's really you, it's really you
He's the shadow man
Oh yeah
Shadow man

About the artist behind Shadowman:

"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]
