ALL THE MADMEN from The Man Who Sold The World 


INTRO:  See tab at end...


E5                 E7sus4           E
Day after day they send my friends away
   E7sus4            E           F
To mansions cold and grey to the far side of town
          Dm                 Em                F              E5
Where the thin men stalk the streets while the sane stay underground

                   E7sus4        E       E7sus4        E
Day after day they tell me I can go they tell me I can blow
       F                           Dm              Em
To the far side of town where it's pointless to be high
         F               E
For it's such a long way down, so I tell them that 

                        Dm              F
I can fly I will scream I will break my arm
Dm           E
I will do me harm

                          Dm            F
Here I stand foot in hand talking to my wall
    Dm                 E
I'm not quite right at all am I?

F                        G
Don't set me free I'm as heavy as can be
        F                     E
Just my librium and me and my EST makes three


CHORUS 1:
           A                     E
'Cause I'd rather stay here with all the madmen
     F#m             A               C#
Than perish with the sad men roaming free
        A                     E
And I'd rather play here with all the madmen
        F#m                   A              Bm  E
For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me


SOLO:  A  F#m  Bm  G  


SPOKEN:  Where can the horizon lie when a nation hides its organic minds
         In a cellar dark and grim they must be very dim


E                  E7sus4           E
Day after day they take some brain away
     E7sus4        E            F
Then turn my face around to the far side of town 
    Dm                Em        F            E
And tell me that it's real then ask me how I feel


SOLO 2:  E  F  Dm  E


                                        F
Here I stand foot in hand talking to my wall
    Dm                 E
I'm not quite right at all
F                        G
Don't set me free I'm as helpless as can be
     F                             E
My libido's split on me gimme some good ole lobotomy


CHORUS 2


A              F#m
Zane zane zane ouvre le chien
Bm             G
Zane zane zane ouvre le chien
A              F#m
Zane zane zane ouvre le chien
Bm             G
Zane zane zane ouvre le chien

Repeat until fade...
