David Bowie tabs @ 911Tabs

Title: Amsterdam (aka 'Port Of Amsterdam')

Artist: David Bowie

Written By: Jacques Brel

Album: Ziggy Stardust (2002 release), Bowie At The Beeb, Pin ups

(1990 release)





The studio version was originally only to be found on old

versions of Pin Ups, but fear not, it will be part of the

reissued Ziggy Stardust package coming soon.


There is also a vigorous live version on Bowie At The Beeb,

and this transcription is valid for that as well.


P.S. Sorry for the naming of these two chords!


Em/G E/F


322000 X4X454


I assume every knows the other chords. Use a barre G so you

can get to the E/F chord afterwards.



Verse 1:


In the first verse each chord indicated is swept once.
