Hi, After I cleaned the wax out of my ears I noticed

some mistakes in my transcription of David Bowie's

"Song for Bob Dylan" so I hereby send you the correct version.

 

Foena

 

Song for Bob Dylan - David Bowie

 

Transcribed by Foena

 

Hunky Dory (1971)

 

Intro: A Abm F#m E(VII) Esus4(VII)

A E 7 F#m B Bsus4

 

A Abm

Hear this Robert Zimmerman

F#m E(VII) Esus4(VII)

I wrote a song for you

A Abm

About a strange young man called Dylan

F# E(VII)

With a voice like sand and glue

Abm C#m7

Some words in truthful vengeance

B A

Could pin us to the floor

F#m E

Brought a few more people on

 

A B7

Put the fear in a whole lot more

 

Chorus:

A

Ah, here she comes

A

Here she comes

D A

Here she comes again

A

The same old painted lady

E

>From the brow of the superbrain

F#m

She 'll scratch this world to pieces

G

As she comes on like an friend

A

But a couple of songs

A

>From your old scrapbook

E

Could send her home again

 

You gave your heart to every bedsit room

At least a picture on the wall

Sat behind a million pair of eyes

And told them how they saw

Then we lost your train of thought

The paintings are all your own

While troubles are rising

We'd rather be scared

Together than alone

 

Chorus:

 

Repeat intro:

 

Now hear this Robert Zimmerman

Though I don't suppose we 'll meet

Ask your good friend Dylan

If he'd gaze a while down the old street

Tell him they've lost his poems

So they're writing on the walls

Give us back our unity

Give us back our family

 

F#m Abm

You're every nation's refugee

A B

Don't leave us with their sanity

 

Chorus:

Ah, here she comes

Here she comes

Here she comes again

The same old painted lady

>From the brow of the superbrain

She 'll scratch this world to pieces

As she comes on like an friend

But a couple of songs

>From your old scrapbook

Could send her home again

 

G

Couple of songs

G

>From your old scrapbook

A

Could send here home again

D

Ah, here she comes

A

Here she comes

D

Here she comes

 

Outro: A Abm F#m E(VII) Esus4(VII)

A Abm F#m B E

 

That's about it, it may not be perfect but it 'll give you a way

To get started. (I'm not sure about E or E7 & B or B7 ?)

 

Note: E(VII) means the E chord seventh fret, ad the sus4 with your

pinky (tenth fret, second string).

 

Have fun,

Foena
