BIG BROTHER from Diamond Dogs 


INTRO:  A  Bb


Bm            F#m      A
Don't talk of dust and roses
Bm           F#m        A
Or should we powder our noses
               G
Don't live for last year's capers
        D                             E
Give me steel, give me steel, give me pulsars unreal
Bm            F#m    A
He'll build a glass asylum
Bm          F#m     A
With just a hint of mayhem
              G
He'll build a better whirlpool
         D                            E
We'll be living from sin, then we can really begin
D              G             D  G
Please savior, saviour, show us
D            G           F#    A
Hear me, I'm graphically yours


CHORUS 1:
           Bm        G          A
Someone to claim us, someone to follow
           Bm        G           A
Someone to shame us, some brave Apollo
           Bm       G            A
Someone to fool us, someone like you
                E            D      B  A
We want you Big Brother, Big Brother

G                       Em
I know you think you're awful square
        C                        G
But you made everyone and you've been every where
C                 G               D                 A
Lord, I'd take an overdose if you knew what's going down

Someone to fool us, someone like you
            Bm        G          A
Someone to claim us, someone to follow
           Bm        G           A
Someone to shame us, some brave Apollo
           Bm       G            A
Someone to fool us, someone like you
           Bm        G          A
Someone to claim us, someone to follow

Owen the Nazz, you are so right. This is one of Bowies greatest!

This is absolutely my favorite Bowie song ever...so Orwellian, so nightmarish, so surreal, and yet so calming. Bowie at his finest!
