David Bowie - Cygnet Committee: chords

Chorus:
D            D/C
I bless you madly
Bm    A#            D
Sadly as I tie my shoe
            D/C
I love you badly
Bm       A#                D   D/C
Just in time, at times, I guess
  Bm        A#            D   D/C
Because of you I need to rest
 Bm          A#                 D
Because it's you that sets the test

D#                    A#m
So much has gone and little is new
A#m          A
And as the sparrow sings
       F#
Dawn Chorus for
 A#m
Someone else to hear
A#m          A
The thinker sits alone
  F#     A#m
Growing older
And so bitter

F                             A#m
I gave Them life, I gave Them all
       C              Fm
They drained my very soul dry
F                                 A#m
I crushed my heart to ease Their pains
     C              Fm         G#
No thought for me remains there
A#m                C#
Nothing can they spare
         C
What of me?

Am                                  F
Who praised Their efforts to be free?
 G                                     C
Words of strength and care and sympathy
Am                                            F
I open doors that would have blocked their way
    G                                        C
I braved Their cause to guide for little pay

Am                                     F
I ravaged at my finanace just for Those
              G                                      C
Those whose claims were steeped in peace, tranquility
Am                                            F
Those who said a new world, new ways ever free
                                   G                   C
Those whose promises stretched in hope and grace for me.

Chorus

So much has gone and little is new
And as the sunrise stream
Flickers on me
My friends talk of glory, untold dream
Where all is God and God is just a word

We had a friend, a talking man
Who spoke of many powers that he had
Not of the best of men but Ours
We used him, We let him use his powers
We let him fill our needs
Now we are strong.

And the road is coming to its end
Now the damned have not time to make amends
No purse of token fortunes stands in Our way
The silent guns of love will blast the sky

We broke the ruptured structure build of age
Our weapons were tongues of crying rage
Where money stood we planted seeds of rebirth
And stabbed the backs of fathers, sons of dirt

  Am
Infiltrated business cesspools
                     F
Hating through Our sleeves
              G
Yea, and We slit the Catholic throat
                     C
Stoned the poor on slogans as:
"Wish You Could Hear
                Am
Love Is All We Need
Kick Out The Jams
Kick Out Your Mother
 F
Cut Up Your Friend
                                G
Screw Up Your Brother or He'll Get You In the End

         C                                 Am
And We Know the Flag of Love is from Above
            F
And We Can Force You to Be Free
            G                   C
And We Can Force You to Believe.

                         Am
And I close my eyes and tighten up my brain
                                     F
For I once read a book in which the lovers were slain
                                          G
For they Knew not the words of the Free States refrain,
It said:

     C
I Believe in the Power of Good
     Am
I Believe in the State of Love
         F
I Will Fight For the Right to be Right
        G
I Will Kill for the Good of the
                           C
Fight for the Right to be Right.

               Am                F
And I open my eyes to look around
                                          G
And I see a child laid slain on the ground
C                  Am
As a love machine lumbers through desolation rows
F                      G
Ploughing down man, woman, listening to its command
         C
But not hearing anymore-
     Am            F
Not hearing anymore
            G
Just the shrieks from the old rich

                 C
And I Want to Believe
                     G
In the madness that calls Now
                 C
And I Want to Believe
                          G
That a light is shining through somehow

                 A#
And I Want to Believe
                   F
And You Want to Believe
                  C
And We Want to Believe
                G
And We Want to Live
                G#
Oh, We Want to Live
            A#
We Want to Live
            C
We Want to Live

            G
We Want to Live
            G#
We Want to Live
            A#
We Want To Live
           C
I Want to Live

           G
I Want to Live
           G#
I Want to Live
           A#
I Want to Live
