Some days ago i saw a request for this song.

Here it is, dedicated to the memory Kurt Cobain, who made

a great cover of this song at MTV Unplugged.





David Bowie - The man who sold the world



Introduction: play r1


Dm A7 Dm

We passed upon the stairs, We spoke of was and when

A7 F

Although I wasn't there, he said i was his friend

C Gm A

Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eyes

Dm C (play r2)

I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

C (play r2) F (r3)

Oh no, not me

Bbm F (r3)

I never lost control

C (r2) F

Your'e face to face

Bbm A (repeat intro. )

with the man who sold the world


I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home

I searched for form and land, for years and years i roamed

I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here

We must have died alone' a long long time ago

Who knows? not me

We never lost control

Your'e face to face

with the man who sold the world





r1 is:


A Dm F








r2 is: (simply play C Major scale)










r3: (F Major scale)










That's all. Enjoy!
