OK, I just figured this one out. Not too hard.

In the second and third verses, another guitar comes in and solos

over the chords.



The Bewlay Brothers - David Bowie

off the CD Hunky Dory


[intro] D D Em A7 x2


And so the story goes they wore the clothes

D Em A

They said the things to make it seem improbable

D D Em A

The whale of a lie like they hope it was


And the Goodmen of Tomorrow


Had their feet in the wallow


And their heads of Brawn, were nicer shorn


And how they bought their positions with saccharin and trust.

Em A D D

The world was asleep to our latent fuss.


Sighing the swirl through the streets


Like the crust of the sun


The Bewlay Brothers


in our Wings that Bark


Flashing teeth of Brass


Standing tall in the dark


Oh, We were Gone-----


Hanging out with your Dwarf Men


We were so turned on


By your lack of Conclusions


D D Em A7


I was Stone and he was Wax

So he could scream and still relax, unbelievable

And we frightened the small children away

And our talk was old and dust would flow

Thru our veins and Lo! it was midnight

Back o' the kitchen door

Like the grim face on the Cathedral floor

And the solid book we wrote

Cannot be found today

It was stalking time for the Moonboys

The Bewlay Brothers

With our backs on the arch

In the Devil-may-be-here

But He can't sing above that

Oh, We were Gone

Real Cool Traders

We were so Turned On

You thought we were Fakers


D D Em A7


Now the dress is hung, the ticket pawned

the Factor Max that proved the fact

is melted down,

And woven on the edging of my pillow

Now my Brother lays upon the Rocks

He could be dead. He could be not,

He could be You.

He's Camelian, comedian Corinthian and Caricature

"Shooting-up Pie-in-the-Sky"

The Bewlay Brothers

In the feeble and the Bad

The Bewlay Brothers

In the Blessed and Cold

In the Crutch-hungry dark

Was where we flayed our Mark

Oh, We were Gone

Kings of Oblivion

We were so Turned On

In the Mind-Warp Pavilion


Bm A

Lay me Place and bake me Pie

G Em

I'm starving for me Gravy

Bm A

Leave my shoes, and door unlocked

G Em

I might just slip away


Just for the Day, Hey! [Repeat last 2 lines into fade]


Please come Away, Hey!
