Hang On To Yourself

(words & music by David Bowie)

 

 

This song is featured off of Bowie~s -The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust

and the Spiders From Mars- album. It is quite simple and fun to play as

are most of Bowie~s songs. Before I write down the chords, I must explain

that the chords G5* and B5* are played respectively:

 

G5*

 

E --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3-

B --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3- (of course, it would be auspicious to

G --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0- accent the bass notes to give it that

D --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0- cool song that the song cannot live

A --x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x-x- without. -h- stands for hammer-on)

E --2h3--3-3--2h3--3-3--2h3-3-

 

 

B5*

 

E ----------------------------

B ----------------------------

G --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4- (this time instead of hammering on, it

D --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4- would be better to slide from the first

A --1s2--2-2--1s2--2-2--1s2-2- fret to the second playing B5*)

E ----------------------------

 

 

The song with the chords are:

 

D-C-G5*

F#m A

Well she is a tongue twisting storm, she will come to the show tonight

Bm F#5-A5-B5*

Praying to the light machine

F#m A

She wants my honey not my money she~s a funky-thigh collector

Bm F#5-A5-B5*

Laying on electric dreams

C D C

Well come on, come on, if you think we~re gonna make it

D-C-G5*

 

 

F#m A

We can~t dance, we don~t talk much, we just ball and play

Bm F#5-A5-B5*

But then we move like tigers on vaseline

F#m A

Well the bitter comes out better on a stolen guitar

Bm F#5-A5-B5*

You~re the blessed, we~re the spiders from Mars
