David Bowie - Diamond Dogs
Future Legend Direct Link: http://www.lovebolts.co.uk/show_user.php?id=187 Transcribed By: ZL FUTURE LEGEND from Diamond Dogs And in the death as the last few corpses lay rotting on the slimy thoroughfare The shutters lifted in inches in Temperance Building high on Poacher's Hill And red mutant eyes gaze down on Hunger City C No more big wheels F Fleas the size of rats sucked on rats the size of cats F# G And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes G# Am Coveting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers G C Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Loveme Avenue D G Ripping and rewrapping mink and shiny silver fox, now legwarmers C Family badge of sapphire and cracked emerald any day now the year of the Diamond Dogs... -----------------------------------------

pulled you out of the oxygen tent E You asked for the latest party D With your silicone hump and your ten inch stump A Dressed like a priest you was, Tod Browning's freak you was Crawling down the alley on your hands and knee E I'm sure you're not protected, for it's plain to see D The diamond dogs are poachers and they hide behind trees A Hunt you to the ground they will, mannequins with kill appeal CHORUS 1: E Will they come...I'll keep a friend serene G Will they come...Oh baby, come unto me A Will they come...Well, she's come, been and gone D Come out of the garden, baby A You'll catch your death in the fog B D A Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs B D A Young girl, they call them the Diamond Dogs The Halloween Jack is a real cool cat E And he lives on top of Manhattan Chase D The elevator's broke, so he slides down a rope A Onto the street below, oh Tarzie, go man go Meet his little hussy with his ghost town approach E Her face is sans feature, but she wears a Dali brooch D Sweetly reminiscent, something mother used to bake A Wrecked up and paralyzed, Diamond Dogs are sableized CHORUS 2 E A Oo oo ooh, call them the Diamond Dogs E D Oo oo ooh, call them the Diamond Dogs INTRO In the year of the scavenger, the season of the bitch E Sashay on the boardwalk, scurry to the ditch D Just another future song, lonely little kitsch A There's gonna be sorrow try and wake up tomorrow CHORUS 3 E A Oo oo ooh, call them the Diamond Dogs E A Oo oo ooh, call them the Diamond Dogs E A Call them the Diamond Dogs, Dogs E A Call them the Diamond Dogs, call them, call them E A Call them the Diamond Dogs, call them, call them, oo E D Call them the Diamond Dogs INTRO OUTRO: A Beware of the Diamond Dogs...repeat many times GUITAR: A D
