Subject: BIG BROTHER by David Bowie

 

this is one of my favourite bowie songs of all time. it is off of the great

and enigmatic album -diamond dogs-. it post-cedes 1984. bowie is just so

great. but anyway, here we go:

 

 

(music starts, bass plays an A note)

 

Bm A

don~t talk of dust and roses

Bm A

or should we powder our noses?

A G

don~t live for last year~s capers

D E

give me steel, give me steel, give me pulses unreal

 

Bm A

we~ll build a glass asylum

Bm A

with just a hint of mayhem

A G

you~ll build a better whirlpool

D E

we~ll be living from sin, then we can really begin

 

D G D G

please savior, save your shores

D G Gb A

help me, i~m graphically yours

 

Bm G A

some one to claim us, some one to follow

Bm G A

some one to shame us, some brave apollo

Bm G A

some one to fool us, some one like you

 

E D-B5-A

we want you big brother, big brother

 

 

break: Bm A G Bm A G Bm A G

E G E G

 

G Em

i know you think you~re awful square

C G

that you~ve made every one and you~ve been everywhere

C G D A

lord, i~d take an overdose if you knew what~s going down

 

Bm G A

some one to claim us, some one to follow

Bm G A

some one to shame us, some brave apollo

Bm G A

some one to fool us, some one like you

Bm G A

some one to claim us, some one to follow

Bm G A

some one to shame us, some brave apollo

Bm G A

some one to fool us, some one like you

Bm G A

some one to claim us, some one to follow

Bm G A

some one to shame us, some brave apollo

Bm G A

some one to fool us, some one like you

 

E

we want you big brother

 

 

(this song submerges into the chant to big brother, which i will not

transcribe. comment, questions, answers, direct your attention to

bye-bye
