David Bowie - Black Tie White Noise: chords

D#sus2
Getting my facts from a Benetton ad
I'm lookin' through African eyes
Lit by the glare of an LA fire
(black tie, white noise)
I've got a face, not just my race,
Bang Bang I've got you babe
Gmaj7
Putting on the black tie,
         F#
cranking out the white noise

Sun comes up and the man goes down
And the woman comes again
Just an hour or so to be safe from fear
(black tie, white noise)
Then we jump through hoops,
we're divisible now, just disappear
Putting on the black tie,
cranking out the white noise

Chorus:
G#
We reach out over race and
hold each other's hands
Fm
Then die in the flames singing
"we shall overcome"
C#           G#
Whoa! What's going on?
Fm
There'll be some blood no doubt about it
C#
But we'll come through don't doubt it
   G#
I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me
   Fm                                       C#
I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me

You won't kill me
You won't kill me, no
But I look into your eyes
And I wonder sometimes
Putting on the black tie,
cranking out the white noise

Oh Lord, just let him see me
Lord, Lord just let him hear me
Let him call me brother
Let him put his arms around me
Let him put his hands together

Chorus

You won't kill me, no
But I wonder why
Yes, and I wonder why sometimes
Putting on the black tie,
cranking out the white noise

They'll show us how to break the rules
But never how to make the rules
Reduce us down to witless punks
(black tie, white noise)
Fascist cries both black and white
Who's got the blood, who's got the gun
Putting on the black tie,
cranking out the white noise
Putting on the black tie,
cranking out the white noise
