David Bowie - Conversation Piece: chords

             G               D  Am
I took this walk to ease my mind
                                C
To find out what's gnawing at me
                            G
Wouldn't think to look at me
           Am                             Em7 C
that I've spent a lot of time in education
                        G
It all seems so long ago
        Am                 Em7 C
I'm a thinker, not a talker
I've no-one to talk to, anyway

   G             F
I can't see the road
         C           G
for the rain in my eyes
F  C G
Ahhh

I live above the grocer's store
Owned by an Austrian
He often calls me down to eat
And he jokes about his broken English
Tries to be a friend to me
But for all my years of reading conversation
I stand without a word to say

Chorus:
I can't see the bridge
For the rain in my eyes
Ahhh

         A                E  Bm
And the world is full of life
                              D
Full of folk who don't know me
                                       A
And they walk in twos or threes or more
           Bm
While the light that shines above
                  D
the grocer's store
                              A
Investigates my face so rudely

       Bm                                 D
And my essays lying scattered on the floor
Fulfill their needs just by being there

        A               G
And my hands shake, my head hurts,
    D              A
my voice sticks inside my throat
       A           G
I'm invisible and dumb,
     D             A
And no-one will recall me

       A             G
And I can't see the water
         D          Fmaj7 G A
for the tears in my eyes
