David Bowie - How Does The Grass Grow?: chords

A#m                         G#
Theres a graveyard by the station
                 F#
Where the girls wear nylon skirts and
Sandals from Hungary
     A#m
The boys ride their Riga 1s
 G#
Upon the little hill
       F#
Such sadness and grief
The trees die standing

Thats where we made our trysts
And struggled with our guns
Would you still love me
If the clocks could go backwards
The girls would fill with blood and
The grass would be green again
Remember the dead
They were so great some of them

Chorus:
F#       G#          A#m
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
F#       G#
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
A#m
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood
F#       G#          A#m
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
F#       G#
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
A#m
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood

But I lived a blind life
A white face in prison
But you made a life out of nothing
Now I ride my black horse
I miss you more
Than youll ever ever know
Waiting with my red eyes
And my stone heart

Chorus

E            G
I gaze in defeat
         D
At the stars in the night
E                G           D
The light in my life burnt away
            E/G#    E/G
There will be no tomorrow
      F#           F
Then you sigh in your sleep
     A         E              D
And meaning returns with the day

Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Where do the boys lie
Mud mud mud
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood
